Item Details

Perlite has been used by gardeners the world over for many years and when you want to improve drainage of your chosen media then use perlite.

PLANT!T Perlite is a natural, pH neutral, sterile growing medium derived from volcanic rock. When using PLANT!T Perlite you can achieve faster germination and striking of cuttings due to superior air to water ratio.

You can use PLANT!T Perlite to aid in the breaking up of heavy soils. Simply mix with potting soil and it will keep the soil loose and light, allowing air and water to reach roots aiding nutrient uptake and improving plant health and growth. PLANT!T Perlite is easy and safe to handle, odourless, lightweight and simple to use.

When expanded, each granular, snow-white particle of perlite is sterile with a neutral pH and contains many tiny, closed cells or bubbles. The surface of each particle is covered with tiny cavities which provide an extremely large surface area. These surfaces hold moisture and nutrients and make them available to plant roots. In addition, because of the physical shape of each particle, air passages are formed which provide optimum aeration and drainage. Because perlite is sterile, it is free of disease, seeds, and insects.

PLANT!T Perlite can be used for:
  • Soil conditioning - increases aeration and drainage in heavy, hard to manage soils
  • Repairing/laying down lawns - gives additional aeration and drainage when raked into spiked holes
  • Planting trees and shrubs - loosens and aerates soil to encourage root development
