A handy 3L bag of Perlite
Growth Technology BetterGrow Perlite is sterile lightweight and very porous. It is produced from a naturally occurring volcanic rock heated to 1000° until it expands kind of like 'volcanic popcorn'. It is stable long-lasting and neither alkali or acidic
We tend to like perlite in most soil mixes but it is particularly good for providing aeration and drainage for drought loving plants such as cacti & succulents
The perlite is ideal for rooting cuttings. It absorbs and holds vast amounts of air and moisture, while improving aeration and drainage. A basic mixing ingredient in a convenient 3 litre bag.
