I need a specific type of soil amendment for this- The key to growing Worsleya ("Blue Amaryllis") successfully is to provide the right growing medium. It needs very fast drainage, to simulate the rocky slopes of it's habitat. It should not be grown in soil. Good mediums include lava rock, pumice, or other porous rock, about 7-10 mm in size. Is this what I am looking for?
Asked by: FJ
yes. if you need lots of dranage.. filling bottom 1/3 with pure perlite and the rest 2/3 with 50-50 mix of perlite and potting soil.

Why is this recommended for only container plants? I'd like to use it in my garden which has compacted soil.
Asked by: KK
you can use it in garden too. But its cheaper and better to use compost as it loosens the soils and provides balanced nutrition

I have raised bonsai for over 40 years, but also care for over 150 other houseplants. In all these years, I never used Perlite, since I never really had a need for it - or so I thought... What a mistake! I started experimenting with the Perlite, for cuttings and seed starting and much to my delight, it is a superb medium, for anything from rooting hedge or tree cuttings, to succulent seed planting. I'm sure millions of others have known this for years, but I just caught up. I have been adding varying amounts of Perlite to everything, when I transplant and can honestly state, the trees, succulents, flowers and houseplants, appear to be doing quite well, with the addition. My plants are all healthy, but I think they are even healthier now, that I have given their roots a little breathing room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for improving drainage in potting soil I mix this with kellogg patio plus or miracle gro potting soil at 3 parts soil to 1 part perlite and the plants seem to love it. water soaks right into the soil and does not pool on top. plant seem to grow much faster than with just potting soil alone.keeps soil loose and well aerated
