Perlite is an excellent soil ingredient to add to promote drainage in heavy soils. The #4 chunky perlite is around the size of a quarter. Often used in chunky houseplant soil mixes. The large sizes creates large air pockets in soils that need to stay moist or water logged. Many people use it in their mixes for their philodendrons and other ariods. Perlite is naturally occurring siliceous rock that expands up to 20 times its original volume when heated to 1600° F. This kilning process is very similar to popping popcorn and produces a growing media that is sterile and has a neutral pH of 7.0. The exceptional physical properties of this perlite make it tops in the perlite world for adding porosity to soil and soilless mixes. This perlite has numerous hydroponic applications as well. The #4 is the largest perlite on the market and averages a whopping size of around 1 in. The #3 measures around 1/2 in and the Coarse is about 1/8 to 1/4 in.
