Schultz Perlite is a natural way of improving soil. It helps soil retain moisture while letting excess water drain through. This makes Schultz Perlite great for starting cuttings and seeds, as well as encouraging rooting and germination. Perlite also prevents soil compaction by breaking up heavy soil for optimum root development.
