MyPot® PERLITA is a high quality, inert substrate suitable for use in hydroponic farming systems. It is made from a volcanic silicate, which expands when cooled quickly. Its characteristics offer very favourable conditions for the growth and root development of any type of plants. It is a white material, highly porous, clean and lightweight. It retains the moisture and slowly releases it in the roots, favouring root respiration and protecting the crop from extreme temperatures.
It is composed of:
- 25L of perlite substrate
The MyPot® plantation module already contains perlite, but it will be necessary to add any lost amounts when replanting the vertical gardens.
The 25L of expanded perlite refill will be sufficient to fill 2 MyPot® plantation modules, leaving a small amount that we can reserve for future occasions. Optionally, you can mix perlite with substrates for your traditional plant pots to improve the structural property of soil, preventing it from compacting and favouring the aeration and water retention in your growing medium.
