Harticultural  Pumice

Star-ltd Horticultural Pumice is a natural lightweight volcanic pumice soil amendment. The pumice is chemically inert, high-silica rock with a neutral pH, and contains millions of interconnecting spherical voids. This porosity give Star-ltd Horticultural Pumice  an extremely high capacity for water absorption, an equally high rate of water retention, and the ability to release moisture back to the plant. The high-silica content gives Star-ltd Horticultural Pumice durability which eliminates the need for reapplication when recycling your potting mix: 

  • Horticultural pumice improves porosity and aeration.
  • Optimizes absorption, retention, and exudation.
  • Absorbs moisture, air and nutrients to promote root growth.
  • Lightens heavy soils and increases retention in light and sandy soils.
  • Functions continuously and permanently, will not break down by cultivation.
