1 liter perlite grains
Bag with 1 liter Perlite (Agra Perlite) granules semi coarse (granules up to 5mm).
Perlite (Agra Perlite) as an additive in the growing medium (for example in potting soil or germination soil) ensures better drainage and a lighter growing medium.
We recommend mixing the germination soil in which Giant Sequoias and Coastal Redwoods are grown from seeds with perlite. This is also recommended for the potting soil in which the young Giant Sequoia and Coastal Redwood trees will be potted in the first few years.The recommended amount of perlite for the germination soil is 10-15% of the total volume. The recommended amount for potting soil is 20% to 25% of the total volume.
- With 6 to 9 liters of germination soil without perlite, we therefore recommend mixing 1 liter of perlite.
- With 3 to 4 liters of potting soil without perlite, we recommend mixing 1 liter of perlite.
The growing medium supplied with our seeding kits is already pre-mixed with the correct amount of perlite as well as the growing medium in which the young trees are placed.
