Use fully EXPANDED Pahroc Perlite, to provide maximum aeration (oxygen to the roots)! – Soil , peat, and coco mulch hardens and compacts over time. This happens as the soil or media is watered; each particle gets closer to the others and air pores are shrunk or eliminated. When this happens, water will not drain through the grow media very well and air will not easily penetrate. Each Pahroc Giant perlite particle has a unique shape that won’t pack down, preventing soil compaction. With lighter grow media, roots can easily expand and absorb oxygen, water and nutrition as needed by the plant. Without oxygen, roots fail to expand or grow, and they may contract various diseases due to a lack of oxygen and overabundance of moisture. Healthy roots mean greater yield and better-tasting crops.
