Great perlite. It would be better if the pieces were a tiny bit larger
Great perlite. It would be better if the pieces were a tiny bit larger. Depending on how the bags were manhandled, there may be a lot of dust at the bottom of the bags. Make sure you wear a mask/respirator if you see dust flying out. But so far so good, I usually mix 50/50 perlite and succulent soil to provide quick drainage so my succulents don't get "wet feet".

    Killed my previously healthy seedlings within minutes to hours!
    I have been growing seeds into plants for over 30 years, and I've never seen a soil amendment kill so quickly! I don't know what Miracle Grow has added to their Perlite, but the most recent bag I opened must have been tainted with herbicide or some other potent salt or toxic chemical. ALL of the previously healthy, stocky beautiful seedlings I transplanted into organic professional potting mix to which I had added some of the new bag of Miracle Grow Perlite began to show signs of poisoning within minutes to hours. Their stems began to narrow and look desiccated (as though someone had sprayed them with herbicide, or introduced some kind of new, fast acting soil pathogen "weapon" of destruction). I have never seen anything like this....I have never, ever, lost so many transplants so quickly due to one seemingly benign, but surreptitiously fatal amendment, which I never suspected would carry a lethal poison. I wish Home Depot would understand that their loyal customer base, even here in the Southeast, needs and demands SAFE, Organic, and Vegan soil amendments, soils, and fertilizers for our family's very necessary organic food production gardens. Our family has not just lost the $5-$6 dollars we spent on the toxic bag of Miracle Grow Perlite, we have lost all of our month - old seedlings that would have produced food for our table during our short Fall season (we cannot get that "grow time window of opportunity" back now). We have lost the dear, healthy seedlings, who trusted us to care for them, and they were SO Healthy and happy right up to the minute their unfortunate roots touched the toxic Miracle Grow perlite-poisoned soil. We have additionally lost the rest of the rather expensive organic professional potting soil that was stupidly mixed by me with the very non-organic, and apparently lethally toxic Miracle Grow Perlite. I am so very sad...and angry. Please save yourself this misery and only buy organic perlite or better yet, pumice or organic pine bark fines to lighten your organic potting mix. Home Depot...are you listening? Please stock some quality OMRI Organic and vegan soil amendments for all of us Organic Gardening customers in Florida and the Southeastern United States. We, too, deserve the same Organic, vegan, and quality products that customers in other states have access to where they live.

      Especially with cactus plants or succulents, you don't want your soil wet so adding this helps air get through better and also makes your soil go further. My daughter told me about it a couple years ago and I always have a bag or two handy.

      Put in product when repotted a sad and heavily root bound Lantana. Did really nothing to the plant after that except dead head removal now and then. It is now healthy and growing amazingly as the ground cover it was made for. Actually proud of myself. Nothing to do with the product though, ha ha

            The best!
            This is the only perlite I use! I mix this in my raised beds, my indoor potted plants and my outdoor potted plants. It does an amazing job to help with drainage. The perlite is all different sizes to it really helps to breat up each and every section of the roots and dirt. It works amazing to propagation too!

                          helps my house plants with drainage very well. I used to have issues with my soil holding to much water and now that issue has been resolved.
