Perlite is a white, sterile propagating medium used by growers to keep soil loose, allowing air and water to reach roots. It is ideal for seeds germination, for potting plants, to root cuttings, to hold cut flower and to help establish new lawns.
It is quite porous. The cavities in perlite help store nutrients and some moisture that the plant might need, but drain excess water away. It is non-toxic, clean, disease-free, and extremely lightweight and easy to work with. It has a neutral pH
It is a natural filtration system, allowing excess water to easily drain away while retaining a little moisture and catching nutrients that plants need to grow.
