naturalGRO Perlite

Perlite is a naturally occuring amorphous volcanic glass that undergoes a unique heat treatment process during which it pops like popcorn, resulting in an incredibly lightweight and porous material. The heat causes the moisture within the glass to expand, forming numerous tiny bubbles, which dramatically increase its volume. This expansion process gives perlite its characteristic white colour and lightweight, airy structure.

naturalGRO Perlite, with its lightweight and porous structure ensures superior drainage, preventing waterlogging and maintaining an ideal moisture balance for optimal plant development, even in diverse environmental conditions. By promoting exceptional air circulation within the soil, naturalGRO Perlite minimizes compaction, fostering a conducive environment for the establishment of strong, healthy root systems. Serving as a stabiliser for soil pH, it creates an ideal growth environment for a diverse array of plant species, facilitating efficient nutrient absorption. Long-lasting and sustainable, naturalGRO Perlite provides continuous support for your plants over multiple growing seasons, offering a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution for your gardening needs.
