Product Description

Perlite is a naturally occurring, non-toxic neutral volcanic rock that has been heated to a high temperature to produce a lightweight, micro-porous material with a high surface area. It is ideal for use when sowing seeds, rooting cuttings, potting on and container growing to improve aeration, moisture retention and drainage. It has been carefully graded to produce a particle size of 2-5mm.

Perlite absorbs and retains vast amounts of air and moisture, improves aeration and drainage and is stable and long lasting.

Root Cuttings:

For soft stem and leaf cuttings use a mixture of equal parts compost and perlite. For harder cuttings and for fragile plants, increase to two parts perlite to one part compost. Keep well watered but ensure free drainage. Plants should be feed as soon as roots develop. Once roots have developed, pot on in the normal way either into compost or a compost/perlite mix. The addition of perlite accelerates rooting and reduces the risk of damping off (fungal disease). It provides an optimum balance of air and water, making waterlogging almost impossible and minimising damage to roots when transplanting.

Potting On:

Fill the container/trough with compost and add 25% perlite by volume, to the compost allowing sufficient space to accommodate plant roots. Perlite can be used wholly or partly in place of sand and/or grit to create a light and open structure, improving aeration, drainage and insulation. Before transferring plants from plant pots to containers it is recommended to water the plants well and allow to drain. Remove plants from their plant pots and place into the container firming compost around the plant roots. Once the container/trough is fully planted, water well and feed as appropriate.

It is recommended to damp the perlite in the bag before use to avoid dust.
