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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price Exactly what I needed to make my own soil mix for filling my raised beds and as well as my potting mix. The perlite pieces are much larger than the ones you get in the smaller bags. Equal parts of coco coir, compost and/or manure and perlite. This is the way to go if you need large volume of soil to fill up raised beds.

I ordered online because there inventory was low at the time, went 4 or 5 days later to pick it up and they had it right there in the front, very easy and convenient, I work at a big box competitor and I wish ours was as easy, they don’t even carry the product. This is a must for cactus soil.TYHD

Perlite is necessary to achieve the proper weight and density of your planting medium. Home Depot is my local source for the larger 2 cu ft bags, and the price is very reasonable.

The particles are a good size and there wasn't *too* much dust, but you'll want to use this outside and be careful not to breathe the dust that does come off it. It keeps my potting mix light and fluffy.
