Horticulture grade expanded Perlite 

Perlite is an alumino-silicate of volcanic origin, which crushed and heated rapidly expands to form a white light weight stable aggregate, possessing a closed cellular structure. Water is retained only on aggregate surface and in pore spaces between aggregates - the result is a well-drained lightweight media, easy to handle and transport. The aggregate have good structural integrity and do not break down when utilized as a propagating media or in planting mixes. The development of a near ideal structural condition in growing and propagating media is made possible by SOILRITE-C.

Horticultural Applications for Pumice

When it comes to growing vibrant plants and turf, it’s all about the quality of the soil. The root systems of plants require a continues supply of oxygen, and the carbon dioxide respirated by the roots must be able to leave the root zone. This all-important exchange of gases is key to a good growing medium.

That means the soil must resist compaction, yet be able to retain water and hold onto the nutrients necessary for plant growth. Adding pumice to garden soils and growing media can help meet those critical requirements.

Pumice as a Soil Conditioner

 

Pumice is an excellent soil conditioner, as it is highly porous, giving it excellent water and air holding properties. Advantages of using pumice in potting media and garden soils include:

—the porous nature of pumice allows it to hold vital nutrients in the microscopic surface pores, which helps regulate fertilizer feedings. It can even be supercharged with nutrients before it is added to the growing medium.

—excellent conditioner for soils that need increased aeration and drainage, as when growing cacti, bromeliads, succulents, or when rooting cuttings.

—loosens the density of heavy clay garden soils, letting in the air and water plants need.

—increases water retention in light and sandy soils.

—makes tillage easier.

—reduces crusting, cracking, flooding and shrink-swelling.

—holds moisture in the soil, reducing watering requirements, yet pumice will not compact or become soggy.

—pumice is inorganic, so it will not decompose or compact over time, meaning it functions continuously and can be recycled and reused.

—pumice is pH neutral.

—pumice does not attract or host fungi, nematodes, or insects.

—pumice makes an excellent component to composts, mitigating volatilization during composting and then contributing in-soil.

These advantages can be realized with as little as a 10% addition of pumice to the soil or growing medium.

 Zeolite

Advantages of Using  Zeolite in Horticulture

1.      An excellent adsorbent with negative charge. This helps in holding the positive ions. This will prevent leaching of Nutrients.

2.      Light weight (650 kg/m3) therefore helps in Aeration of heavy soils, at the same time helps in retaining moisture in sand based greens.

3.      Reduces usage of Fertilizers and manures by more than 50%.

4.      Prevents leaching of Fertilizers and chemicals thus prevents flow of chemicals to underground water sources & streams. Therefore extremely eco friendly.

5.      Does not react with chemicals therefore very stable and lasts for a long time  (at least 20 years)

6.      Very easy to apply, can be broadcast or incorporated with the green sand at the time of construction.

7.      Economical because only about 1-2 kg/m2 is required.

8.      Gives excellent results in potting mixes turf fields and substrats.
