Perlite is a unique naturally occurring volcanic mineral which expands to about 13 times its original volume when it is heated to a temperature of approximately 1700°. Perlite is a lightweight granular material that’s white in color. It looks and feels like little bits of polystyrene but is actually made from expanded volcanic glass, heated to 1000°C until it ‘pops’ (like popcorn) to many times its original size. It’s lightweight, sterile, and easy to handle, and is long-lasting. It’s neither alkaline nor acidic.
