Use This Pumice As Direct Replacement For Perlite
Last Longer Than Perlite & Has More Minerals
3/8" x 1/4" Pumice is perfect for potting soil.
Pumice is created when super-heated, highly pressurized rock is violently ejected from a volcano. The unusual foamy configuration of pumice happens because of simultaneous rapid cooling and rapid depressurization. The depressurization creates bubbles by lowering the solubility of gases (including water and CO2) that are dissolved in the lava, causing the gases to rapidly exsolve (like the bubbles of CO2 that appear when a carbonated drink is opened). The simultaneous cooling and depressurization freezes the bubbles in the matrix.
How To Use Pumice
Use for potting soil at 15-40% by Volume
