Product Information

Perlite Canada’s perlite is prized in horticulture for its aeration qualities and its ability to retain water and fertilizer without compacting the soil. A volcanic rock, perlite expands after crushing and baking. It is known to dilate four to twenty times in volume when heated. During dilation, perlite particles form white granules with tiny cavities or pores. The porous surface retains water needed for plant roots and forms air passages at the base of plants, thereby providing optimal aeration. Perlite varies in colour from bone white to gray. Perlite acts as a natural soil conditioner for heavy soils, lawns, gardens and plants. It mixes well with peat moss and can be used in potting soil mixes. 4 cubic foot bags are available in grain sizes ranging from fine (0-2mm) to coarse (2-5mm).
