Fox Farm's Big & Chunky Perlite allows for extra aeration and superior drainage!
The larger bits of perlite allow for better anchorage of the root system. The larger surface area holds moisture and nutrients as well. Sterile and neutral pH.
Use it in potting containers with your choice of soil to improve drainage, keep roots oxygenated, and prevent plants from becoming waterlogged. Hydroponic growers know that Big & Chunky is the ultimate grow medium. Use it as a stand-alone product or combine it with Fox Farm's Light Warrior Agro-Ponic Grow Medium (SKU:FX14023), and enjoy it's added benefits of mycorrhizae (a beneficial fungi species that promotes root growth and enhances fertilizer uptake).
Garden Tip: In containers, spread Big & Chunky Perlite in a one-inch layer along the bottom of the pot, then mix one part Big & Chunky with four parts potting soil. Water thoroughly and allow soil mixture to settle before planting. In hydroponic systems, fill pot with Big & Chunky, and position plant properly so its root system is supported in the medium.
