EDIT: I checked out shipping and it's so expensive it pretty much brings up the price to store prices so I'm going to call this off (unless you've already contacted me about it and still really really want it, or if you live in Austin and want to pick some up.) Sorry for the false advertising, I didn't know shipping would be so expensive.

"Perlite blowout! We've bought too much inventory and we're ready to pass on the savings to youuuuu!"

I sound like a furniture store ad, but seriously, that's what happened. I've got a ton of Sungro horticultural Perlite and I wouldn't mind getting rid of some to save some space. I bought it in bulk at great value but really don't need this much. Prices:

1 Dry QT - $0.65 + shipping
1 Dry Gallon - $1.85 + shipping
2 Dry Gallon - $3.39 + shipping

Depending on shipping, this is quite a bit cheaper than my local nurseries offer it, which is why I'm posting this, but please shop around first and make sure you can't get a better deal. You may be able to do better online somewhere, unless you choose to skip the Paypal fees (see below). I don't know how much shipping will be but I can figure it out once I know how much you want and where it's going. I plan to ship in a sandwhich or freezer bag inside a box. If I have a spare box laying around I'll use that so you don't have to pay for one.

I'll accept Paypal payments only. I've factored the transfer fee into the cost (hence the higher price at lower quantities). If you trust me and want to send your payment as a transfer (free of paypal fees - *this waives your Paypal buyer protection*) let me know and I'll adjust the price. I've got about 15 dry gallons extra so first come, first serve.

Also, be sure to check out the FlyTrapStore's pre-made Venus Fly Trap soil if you want a tried and true mix instead of messing with mixing your own soil.

I'm going to check out other shipping options tomorrow as shipping in boxes looking a little expensive. Maybe I can instead send them in a bag wrapped in tape...which hopefully won't set off a bunch of DEA red flags.

Ok, I think I've replied to everyone who's showed interest so far. If I didn't, please see the note in my edit at the top. Thanks for your interest everyone.
