How to use Volkanix Perlite To avoid inhaling any dust,dampen with water before using it. If using a whole bag of perlite in one go, pour a couple of litres of water into the bag, seal the top and shake it, then let it soak for quarter of an hour before using. Sowing seeds / Propagation Mix perlite into seed and cuttings compost at a ratio of 50:50 to create a moist environment perfect for delicate seedling roots. A fine layer of perlite is also excellent for covering seed that needs light to germinate because the perlite lets light through whilst still keeping the seed moist and aiding germination. Aerating your Soil / Compost Succulents and other plants sensitive to moist soil benefit from having perlite added to the potting compost. The perlite will trap air in the compost and encourage water to drain through, ensuring the plantâs roots will never sit in damp soil. Mix perlite with compost at a ratio of around 1:4. Do this before planting to ensure an even mix.
