What's the ratio of perlite to potting mix?

Asked by Connie August 5, 2020
2
Answers

It depends how aerated you want your potting mix to be. For my cacti I do 1:1, houseplants less for well drainage. If you’re a generous waterer definitely up the perlite content.

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

Hi there can I use this perlite for the bonsai soil for all purpose?

Asked by Kevin May 1, 2020

Answers

In my limited experience with bonsai, don’t most people use a clay style of medium? Like akadama or something? If you are planning on mixing this with another soil medium then it should be fine if your mix calls for perlite.

Does adding gypsum to clay soil get rid of standing water

Asked by Qbert April 19, 2020
5
Answers

Gypsum does help with drainage in clay and also helps with alkalinity caused by clay. However, if the reason is a local low spot where runoff collects, you may need to look into drains rather than a soil additive.

How much asbestos is in this product?

Asked by Organicgarden April 16, 2020

Answers

You may be confusing perlite with vermiculite. Perlite is a volcanic glass that's puffed up like popcorn and shouldn't contain any asbestos. You still need to avoid breathing the dust from perlite as it can irritate your eyes and lungs. I usually don't have an issue with that, though.

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.
