Chillagoe Perlite offers a number of unique properties which make it an ideal horticultural medium such as:

  • A naturally occurring environmentally friendly material - totally made from Australian raw materials
  • Clean and sterile - no diseases introduced, no sterilisation necessary
  • Lightweight and easy to handle
  • Does not deteriorate - lasts indefinitely, value for money
  • Does not compact thereby providing good aeration and drainage - ideal for long lasting plants
  • Due capillary lift it keeps supplying water and nutrients to other plants when a reservoir is used. This reduces management as plants don't have to be watered as often.
  • Prevents drying out as Perlite absorbs up to 5 times its own weight of water. A built-in safety factor
  • Provides good insulation to protect roots from extreme temperature fluctuations thereby minimising plant stress

  Because of these properties, Perlite is an ideal medium for:

  • Propagation Mixes
  • Potting Mixes
  • Soil Conditioning
  • Hydroponics
  • Bulb Storage
  • Landscaping and Rooftop Gardens
In conclusion, Chillagoe Perlite provides a sterile and easy to manage substrate for any crop. It is very light weight, so easy and quick to setup, saving labour. Capital expenditure is low, as Perlite can be used on sloping or undulating sites. Irrigation timing is less critical than many systems, and, because it is completely inert, slat build up is never a problem.
