Horticultural Perlite

In 1L Bag

Horticultural Perlite is a lightweight, non-organic soil conditioner with a porous structure, used in horticultural growing mixes. Clean, easy to use, with a pH range in between 6,5 and 7,5. It prevents the soil from compacting, keeps the soil aerated and it doesn’t decompose in time. Eases the absorbtion of water and nutrients by the roots. Has an excellent insulation against temperature fluctuation.
