Questions & Answers

What size are the "granules" - Coarse, medium, or fine? Is this the same/similar size "granules"...

What size are the "granules" - Coarse, medium, or fine? Is this the same/similar size "granules" to the Miracle Grow perlite? I'm looking for coarse/large granules.
Asked by: Liz
Trust me, this perlite isn't coarse! Medium at best but this might be considered to be coarse by Vigoro for all I know. It seems like every brand has there own opinion on what "coarse" is. What I thought was funny is the fact that the pictures show different grades,lol. Aren't the pictures there to help you see what grade it is? Anyway, I've bought different brands of perlite elsewhere that said it was coarse on the bag but it wasn't coarse either. It really depends a lot on the brand and it seems like its getting harder and harder to find "true" coarse perlite. I bought two bags of this stuff and I cant use it because its too fine. It would sure help if the bags at least had a transparent area so that you could actually see it before you buy it, not to mention maybe actually printing the "grade" on the bag, but like I said, that can be misleading.

canI use for fish tank ?
Asked by: Tony
What are you trying to do with it in a fishtank? If you are making a plant terarium,fine.If you are trying to use it in place of gravel,it will not work as perlite floats on top of water.

Can I use this up amend compacted clay soil in yard?

I am replacing compacted deep clay soil in my yard because amending it with topsoil and compost is not usually enough. Or I have mixed results anyway. The hardware store advised I buy permits to mix in when amending my soil. I am not sure I want to use peat moss because I do not want to add acidity. But most of the clay is not reusable anyway. I've been buying soil from the nursery, but it will take too much to replace it everywhere I want a plant... (a half truckload from nursery is super inexpensive competed to buying topsoil by the bag at a box store. Thanks for help.
Asked by: Scarlette
Perlite will give air into the soil, at least it seems to do that for me. When I have used some potting soils w/o perlite, it compacts and the plants don't seem to thrive as well. When I add the perlite, it loosens it up and helps the root to breathe.

Perlite or vermiculite?

I am setting up a raised bed for strawberries, beans, etc. I'm using a third each of compost, peat, and for the final third, either vermiculite or perlite. So which is better for this situation, perlite or vermiculite, or does it matter?
Asked by: Cee
I use both with great results plus cow manure.

The price per cubic foot is the best price around for small batches of perlite, short of driving 2 hours to a greenhouse supply and buying a bigger bulk of it.
