    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.
