Reduces the need for watering!

Coarse Grade Perlite has larger particles and less dust than the horticultural grade type. This product is OMRI-approved for organic gardening. Each bag contains four cubic feet of perlite.

Perlite provides excellent aeration and drainage yet retains a substantial amount of water. As it begins to dry, it releases any stored water to your plants. This water retention ability also extends to nutrients when used with water-soluble fertilizers.

Use perlite by itself or for hydroponics systems, as part of any potting mix, or for sticking cuttings. It is also perfect for raised beds, rooftop gardening, lawns, seed starting, and container gardening. Lightweight perlite does not crush fine stems or root systems, making it great for growing delicate plants like lettuce or other leafy greens.

Perlite reduces the need for watering, saving you both time and money. As a chemically inert material, perlite will not deteriorate and has a nearly neutral pH. It is also sterile, ensuring it is free of disease, weed seeds, or insects. This bag fills approximately 64 one-gallon nursery pots.

Not coarse Tony from SC wrote November 30, 2019

I was disappointed. This is horticultural grade not coarse perlite. Guess I have to continue looking for #4 grade perlite or larger.

A.M. Leonard responds: Customer service sent the customer a refund.

I was hoping for better Roy from MO wrote March 29, 2018

I purchased the course grade perlite in hopes that it was larger than the horticultural grade, that’s not the case. Next time I will order the larger grade from a supplier that offers it.
