But First, Lets Ask. Do You Need Perlite?
Do you need to buy Perlite? Soil, Peat Moss & Coco Coir have a natural tendency to want to compact. As the media becomes wet through consistent watering. Over-time each particle becomes closer and closer to one other. Therefore, negatively impacting the medium & thus shrinking available air cavities. As a consequence, water will not drain as frequently, causing possible damage to roots and growth rates. This will be due to lack of oxygen being able to easily to penetrate in the top 1/3 of the root zone. A decrease in plant vigor and production will occur.
Due to a lack of oxygen and high moisture retention, roots may fail to grow. They will be more susceptible to diseases. Lichen may spurt on your medium if it remains wet most of the time.
What is it?
A volcanic rock, perlite expands after crushing and baking. It is known to dilate four to twenty times in volume when heated.
During dilation, perlite particles form white granules with tiny cavities or pores. The porous surface retains water needed for plant roots and forms air passages at the base of plants, thereby providing optimal aeration. Perlite varies in color from bone white to gray.
