Perlite is a naturally occurring volcanic rock that, when heated to high temperatures, produces lightweight micro-porous granules.
When mixed with compost, Perlite holds water and nutrients in the compost, producing a healthier growing media.
- Mix with soil when planting out to help hold water and nutrients close to the root system.
- Use alone for seed germination.
- Improves water and nutrients holding capacity when mixed with compost.
Primarily a compost additive, Perlite helps to stimulate root development and growth.
Before use, dampen Perlite to reduce dust. If using the whole bag, add about a litre of water and allow to soak.
Perlite can be used for seed starting, rooted cuttings, potting-on or planting out. If using for seed starting, Perlite’s structure maintains moisture and temperature levels.
