I found that Perlite soaks up water pretty well and have grown plants in
it on several occasions, though not on a large scale. In fact I helped
my niece grow a radish project for her science class and used it. We
used a large soda bottle (cut in half) inside another larger bottle (also
cut in half. One inside the other with the top of the larger one for a
'greenhouse' cover. Out of about 60 kids, she was one of only 2 who
actually get radishes instead of radish root fibers. I think she had a
couple small holes in the bottom of the smaller bottle and poured the
solution through the media once a day. It ran into the larger bottle
bottom and she poured it out when it was time to water again.
By the way, I haven't heard from the fellow who posted the original
request. Did you see it. What do YOU think. What are your plans?
