Horticultural Grade Perlite (4 cubic feet)

  • Horticultural Perlite helps plants thrive and improves soil structure, keeping it workable for years.
  • This inorganic mineral provides aeration and drainage, yet retains and holds substantial amounts of water that it releases when needed.
  • This process produces healthier plants that require less labor and watering.
  • Perlite can be used by itself, mixed with topsoil or potting soil, or any other sterile media for drip or passive hydroponic systems.
  • The water-holding ability of Perlite also increases the nutrient holding capacity when water-soluble fertilizers are used.
  • Perlite is very lightweight and does not crush fine stems or root systems, making it ideal for growing delicate plants such as lettuce.
  • As it is chemically inert, Perlite does not deteriorate and has an essentially neutral pH.
  • It is a sterile material and is therefore free of disease, weed seeds and insects. 
  • One 4 cu. ft. bag will fill approximately 64 one-gallon nursery pots.
  • Horticultural Perlite is ideal for:
    • Commercial and hobby hydroponic growing
    • Container growing
    • Raised beds
