Product Description:

Perlite is a volcanic glass that is mined and then heated in big ovens until it 'pops' into a round, white material. That white material is used in seed-starting and potting mixtures to lighten the soil. It also allows more air around the roots for the healthy growth of plants. As a soil amendment, it reduces compaction in soil and improves the soil structure. TrustBasket Perlite is sterile and free of pathogens and weed seeds. 

 

Benefits of Perlite: 

  • Improves aeration and drainage in the soil.
  • Perlite particles create tiny air tunnels which allow moisture, oxygen, and nutrients to flow freely to roots.
  • Improves aeration in clayey soil too.
  • Reduces the extreme temperature fluctuations in the soil.
  • Prevents root rotting.
  • Best to grow cuttings as cuttings are more prone to rotting.
  • The pH of perlite ranges between 6.5 - 7.5.

  

Directions to use:

  • 20 - 25% perlite can be added to make a potting mix.
  • Add 30% when used with clay soil.
  • Can be used anywhere like container gardening, land gardening, terrace gardening, etc.
