great to have
good mix in for soil
BuildASoil doesnt use perlite in our recipes, as we prefer growstone, pumice, or rice hulls. That being said we do keep it in stock for custom recipes. We source our perlite in Colorado from Persolite - heres some information about them!Healthy, hardy plants require a proper soil mix which includes Perlite. PERLITE is essentially lightweight glass - specifically volcanic glass. When mixed with soils, it increases aeration and drainage which helps root development.
Perlite is extremely effective in horticultural applications to lighten the soil, allow more air around the roots of plants and to both help retain water and improve drainage.
When used as a soil additive, perlite serves to enhance the potential for foliage in a number of ways—namely by improving soil permeability, facilitating irrigation and lowering the density of the soil for proper root growth!
For years, perlite manufacturers have been studying the demands of different horticulture applications to produce perlite products that are conducive to better plant growth. Persolite Products is proud to be on the cutting edge of this research and we’re delighted to be able to offer our customers perlite products that are specifically formulated for optimal plant growth.
Our perlite products are formulated to maximize airflow and moisture to plant roots, while also improving drainage. The effects are plain to see—plants bedded in soil with our perlite additive grow bigger, stronger, more vibrant and to a healthier degree versus those grown in rockwool or with denser soil additives!
From the grow house to the green house, community gardens to sports field turf, it’s important to trust a perlite manufacturer that understands the needs of your planting application and who can provide a perlite solution that meets and exceeds those needs. Persolite Products is here to help, with decades of innovation and experience backing us.
