Perlite! The popcorn of the soil additives. It is a staple in most potting soils and a must-have if you only have standard garden soil at hand that doesn’t drain well.
Improves aeration and drainage
Perfect for propagation
Carefully sifted from powders
Perlite is an amazing addition to your soil mix. It improves aeration and drainage qualities of any soil mix. Perlite is very light-weight and a sustainable resource. Perlite is also great for propagating plants, just fill the container with water and perlite and submerge the stem of the plant.
This perlite is sifted carefully and won't stir up any powder when moving it around, making it safer than regular powdery perlite. The small particles are bad for your health and can get stuck in your lungs.
Perlite v.s. Vermiculite
Compared to vermiculite it retains less water and creates a more airy substrate. This is ideal for most houseplants except ones that prefer a moist soil like the alocasia, calathea & maranta plants.

Très bonne perlite sans trop de poussière
Bon format de sac. Je renouvelais ma réserve de perlite. Utilisée seule, en semi-hydroponie, ou en mélange à d'autres substrats, difficile de s'en passer.
That's great to hear Louise. Thanks for sharing.
