can I use this Perlite and mix it with cement as a insulator to build a wood pizza oven ?

It really depends on the particular recipe you mix it into, there are a couple of recipes floating around the net that use perlite, come out hard-faced and stand just nearly 3000 degrees for a sustained amount of time. It all depends on the rest of the recipe

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

Asked by Liz January 9, 2018

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.

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

Asked by Scarlette June 19, 2017

Answers

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.

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.

Cremains/ashes? Will this help?

I personally think that if it works, if you mix it with soil and then you just water with a balanced pH.

I needed this perlite to transplant a banana tree into a larger pot for our patio. It makes the pot lighter in case it has to be moved and also keeps the soil from getting compacted when our cats sleep around the base of the banana plant. For some reason it has been hard to find this summer, so when I found a couple of bags listed at a local Home Depot I purchased it online to make sure it was there when I went to pick it up. Score!

Some brands of perlite are too fine. The big company’s version is like dust and also contains plant food, which burns stems and is not needed for propagation. This brand is a good value. I have already recommended it to friends and pros.
