Use This Pumice As Direct Replacement For Perlite

Last Longer Than Perlite & Has More Minerals

3/8" x 1/4" Pumice is perfect for potting soil.

Pumice is created when super-heated, highly pressurized rock is violently ejected from a volcano. The unusual foamy configuration of pumice happens because of simultaneous rapid cooling and rapid depressurization. The depressurization creates bubbles by lowering the solubility of gases (including water and CO2) that are dissolved in the lava, causing the gases to rapidly exsolve (like the bubbles of CO2 that appear when a carbonated drink is opened). The simultaneous cooling and depressurization freezes the bubbles in the matrix.

Never use Perlite Again

I love how this doesn’t float when watered, adds aeration without being extremely worried about the source (although rice hulls are going to be the most renewable), and best of all it takes forever to break down within the soil.

Amazing substrate!

What a great substrate! I sifted it with the intention of using it for bonsai and it's the perfect size with a negligible amount of fines! Thank you!
