Perlite speeds up germination and rooting, improves aeration, draining & insulation in potting mixes, and improves the texture of soils.
The internal honeycomb cells help to improve aeration and insulate growing media. This therefore reduces large temperature fluctuations.
Perlite is the name for a naturally occurring siliceous rock. When heated, it has the capacity to expand from four to twenty times its original volume.
With a neutral pH of between 6.5 and 7.5, it's chemically and biologically stable and does not lock up or promote nutrient release.
These natural minerals, renowned in the hydroponic world, ensure the perfect balance of aeration and moisture retention. Whether you're aiming for faster root development or preventing soil compaction, this dynamic duo promotes healthy, vigorous growth.
