Rice Hulls - Replacement For Perlite

Studies have proven that rice hulls can efficiently replace perlite in your potting soil mixes and is much better for the environment.

We recommend using around 30% aeration. If going for long term no-till we suggest using half Rice Hulls and Half Pumice or Lava Rock.

Rice Hulls are an increasingly popular replacement for perlite in horticultural mixes. They increase aeration without the tendancy to float to the top of the pot like perlite will. Naturally provides silica for healthy strong root development. Rice hulls are slow to break down and make a good addition to potting mixes.
