Perlite # 3 is an excellent option for your gardening needs. Anti-fungal nature and other properties make it a beneficial addition to soil and hydroponic gardening.

This easy-to-use and affordable grow medium contains non-toxic chemicals since it's manufactured from the naturally occurring compounds present in the soil. Perlite is non-inflammable, porous, sterile, odorless, and does not shrink or decay. Since perlite # 3 is easy to re-use by washing, so this organic substrate will have a long-life cycle.
You can easily mix the substrate with peat and other water-retaining materials (like loam, etc.) when making your own potting soil. It will make the soil loose and boost aeration. Moreover, the growing medium will not decompose. Therefore, it will stay with you for many years. Perlite #3 lowers soil compaction in the clay soils.
Another benefit of using this sterile grow medium is that perlite is stable and retains its shape even when pressed hard into the soil. It also has a PH neutral level (7.0). This makes it a perfect option to use in any container or garden bed.
Lightweight and high displacement properties of this naturally occurring mineral allow proper drainage into the soil and prevents over-watering to plants. It also serves as an insulator when it comes to shielding plants from temperature changes.
