How Perlite Works:
Perlite is an inert medium made from expanded volcanic glass. Perlite granules have a rough porous texture with a huge surface area. Because of this property, perlite can hold a lot of water on its surface. As perlite is granular, it helps to prevent a soil-mix from clumping together and allows water to drain more freely through it.
How to Use Perlite:
Perlite can be added to any soil-mix to improve its water retention properties and to help prevent clumping. Perlite is usually added at a rate of 5% to 30% depending on how much improved drainage is required. To add perlite simply mix it into your soil, stir thoroughly and then use your soil-mix as usual – easy!
