What are the benefits of using Perlite?

- Makes moisture and nutrients available to the plants
- Does not deteriorate
- Netural pH
- Acts as an insulator - reducing heat fluxuation
- Clean, odourless, and light in weight
- Safe to handle
What would I use it for?
Perlite is great for covering seed trays, adding to potting mix, or other mixes where you require it to be light in weight
