What is Perlite?
Perlite is a volcanic rock with a high water content. When heated to a very high temperature the water turns to gas (steam) causing the rock pellets to pop like popcorn greatly expanding in size. The steam dissipates leaving behind a light-weight honeycomb structure full of air pockets.
Why Blend Coco with Perlite?
Perlite vastly increases the amount of air within the mix and reduces the water holding capacity. This creates a lighter mix with better drainage and improved resistance to compaction.
