Perlite has been recognised as a powerful gardening tool for centuries. It has a porous texture similar to popcorn with tiny air pockets.
Benefits of perlite
Add a good handful or two per pot, mixing it in with fresh potting soil.
What is perlite?
Straight out of the ground, perlite is a dense, amorphous volcanic glass with a very high water content. It is superheated, causing it to expand like popcorn. As it's heated, the water turns to steam and escapes leaving the tiny air pockets.
