Great Mix
I got this a bit late in the season so I used it on a struggling potted plant. The plant seems much happier and is looking really good with the perlite added. I had hoped to use it in an outdoor hanging planter that is too heavy but that won't work. You need to mix it in the soil. I will use it with some of my special outdoor bushes and vines next season. Because of how well it seems to have worked with my indoor plant I am hoping this extra bit of love will work with the outdoor plants. I'm sure it will. You don't have to use much. It is very light.

Ideal for Seed Starting Mixes
I am thinking this will become my go-to for creating seed starting mixes in particular. A bit of this perlite and some coco coir or peat moss would be ideal. The perlite is a relatively small and standard size that is great for starting seeds. Sometimes perlite can come in some really big chunk sizes that prohibit seed growth. That is not the case with this product. It seems very good quality with consistent sizes. Another aspect of it that I like is the small amount of fertilizer that is just right for brand new seedlings until you add supplemental water soluble fertilizer once the seedlings are old enough. Another unique aspect of this perlite is the diatomaceous earth. I think this should help prevent fungus gnats which will definitely be beneficial when starting seeds indoors.

Viagrow Harvest Hero 2 pack Enhanced Perlite soil mix, for super growth.
We were excited to receive our Harvest Hero Enhanced Perlite Mix. The mixture of perlite about 71 percent, natural diatomaceous earth 17 percent, fertilizer 5 percent of 0 - 10 - 10 will increase the size, health and yields of flowers, fruits and vegetables. The best mixture is around 1 part perlite to 4 parts compost before planting or potting to ensure an even mix. Your plants will thank you!

Works fine, just wish the bag zipper actually worked
I'm using this with a recommended 1 to 2 mix of Harvest Hero Perlite to coco coir for some new rootings of rosemary plants, and it seems to be doing the job well. After all, perlite is a commodity product -- however, this brand has a few extra little nutrients to help along the young plants or seedlings. The analysis is less than 0-1-1, so I'm assured it won't burn. I'd give it a 5 if the built in reseal zipper in the bag worked. It doesn't, so I guess I'll have to put it in one of my containers.

Easy to use for cuttings or seed starting
I used this perlite mix as part of the planting medium for growing holly plants from cuttings. I followed the instructions on the package and used a mixture of approximately one part perlite to two parts coco peat. After mixing everything together, I filled a six-pack plant container with the mix. The ends of the cuttings were dipped in rooting hormone and inserted into a hole in the planting mix. The last step was thoroughly saturating the soil and keeping it moist until enough roots form so they can be transplanted into larger pots. This product was very easy to work with, and I look forward to using it in the spring as part of a seed starting mix for my tomato and pepper plants.

Ideal mixture of Perlite & Diatomaceous Earth
With the exception of the Winter months, I have over twenty potted plants, many flowering, outside, around the house. I had been adding potting soil alone when replanting until I realized that this was not enough. A fairly new product on the market is Harvest Hero Enhanced Perlite Mix. It consists primarily of Perlite (71%), and Diatomaceous Earth (17%). For potting, I found it quite simple to mix 3 parts Harvest Hero with 10 parts peat moss. I then added an equal amount of potting soil. Although it is not possible to see results after just a couple of days, I am confident that my new recipe will be superior to my old one. From the company's website, it appears that both primary ingredients are mined & processed right here in the USA.
