Agroperlite is applied to the soil or substrate for planting vegetables outdoors or in a greenhouse, flowers and other houseplants, ornamentals, berry bushes and fruit trees – to improve the structure of heavy soils.
Perlite is a material of volcanic origin that expands from heat and becomes porous. A common issue with gardening is watering, which depends on several things: the size of the plant, its type, and the season. Crumbles of perlite pass air and moisture to the roots of the plant, which are mainly used for absorption. Due to the properties of perlite, water, air and nutrients can be retained for as long as the plant needs them. Perlite accelerates seed germination, promotes root formation and growth, reduces transplant damage, protects plants from temperature fluctuations all day long, because it has low electrical conductivity, no nutrients and cannot replenish the soil with them, making it different from other biological additives.
Recommendations for use: We recommend to mix 1:1 equal parts for the production of ornamental plants and flowers: Prepare the mix, moisten the substrate and agroperlite, and prevent it from drying out. We recommend incorporating 10-40% of perlite in the soil for field plants, greenhouses, depending on the final result. Use 20-60% for container plants and potted plants. For houseplants, use as an additive (10-40% by volume) adding to peat substrate or compost soil, and for succulents up to 50-70% by volume of soil.
