Big & Chunky Perlite

Big & Chunky Perlite

Why do we call it Big & Chunky? Because we use extra-big chunks of perlite that provide the best drainage for superior root aeration.

Use it in containers with our Ocean Forest® or Happy Frog® Potting Soil to improve drainage, keep roots oxygenated, and prevent plants from becoming waterlogged.

Hydroponic growers know that Big & Chunky is the ultimate hydroponic grow medium. Use it as a stand-alone product or combine it with our Light Warrior® Agro-Ponic® Grow Medium, and enjoy it's added benefits of mycorrhizae (a beneficial fungi species that promotes root growth and enhances fertilizer uptake).

Garden Tip: In containers, spread Big & Chunky Perlite in a one-inch layer along the bottom of the pot, then mix one part Big & Chunky with four parts potting soil. Water thoroughly and allow soil mixture to settle before planting. In hydroponic systems, fill pot with Big & Chunky, and position plant properly so its root system is supported in the medium.

For seed starting and propagation, mix one part Big & Chunky with three parts Light Warrior®. Go here for a hydroponic Feeding Schedule.
