Product Description

Details

Hydroponic Grade.

Perlite has been around for years, mainly for use as a soil additive to increase aeration and draining of the soil. Perlite is a mined material, a form of volcanic glass that when rapidly heated to more than 1600 deg. f. it pops much like popcorn as the water vaporizes and makes countless tiny bubbles.

 

Perlite is a great hydroponic growing medium. Used by itself or as a mixture with other mediums. Perlite is commonly used with vermiculite ( a 50 - 50 mix is a very popular medium), and is also one of the major ingredients of soiless mix's. perlite has good wicking action which makes it a good choice for wick-type hydroponic systems. Perlite is also relatively inexpensive.

 

The biggest drawback to perlite is that it doesn't retain water well which means that it will dry out quickly between watering, so mixed with Vermiculite which retains water is a good mix.
