1. KEY INGREDIENT

Perlite can be a key ingredient in your orchid potting mix. Using either Orchid Perlite Super Coarse or Jumbo together with Vermiculite, Bark and sphagnum moss to create a light, moisture retentive orchid mix. The Super Coarse grade is sold in gravel-sized particles. Orchid Plants won’t grow well in normal soil as it does not allow enough air to flow around orchid roots. The idea when potting orchids is to find materials that will anchor orchid roots and keep the mix open permitting air flow. The best products to use allow air to move around the roots.

2. UNIQUE CAPILLARY ACTION

Using horticultural perlite allows for a constant supply of nutrient to the plant by taking advantage of the unique capillary action of perlite. An outstanding characteristic of using a very open mix including perlite is that hobbyists won’t over-water and that there is always excellent aeration.

3. GOOD AERATION

The irregular shape of perlite holds the soil particles apart and allows air to reach even the smaller roots. Using PERLITE for Orchids is easy – just mix up the ingredients required and away you go!

Orchid Perlite Super Coarse – Insulates the mix reducing fluctuation in temperature.

4. STERILE & NON-TOXIC

It will not rot, deteriorate, or grow mould and lasts, is odourless and non-toxic. PERLITE for Orchids is pH neutral, inorganic, inert and sterile
