Pumice a porous, volcanic rock. It's frequently used in soil mixes to allow airflow around plant roots, increase the drainage speed and loosen heavy potting mixes. For this reason, pumice makes an especially useful soil additive when potting drought tolerant plants like succulents and cacti. Alternately, adding a decorative layer to the top of your pots makes for an attractive, minimalistic top-dressing.
Pumice is safe to use with all houseplants, and can simply be mixed into soil or other potting mediums as necessary. For a quick succulent/cactus soil blend, try mixing 50:50 soil to pumice.
Approximately 1 quart of pumice. Ships in a bag lined with PLA, a bioplastic made from corn.
The pumice is good sized I do wish the bag was bigger because I’ve been looking for pumice everywhere to add to my soil blend but it’s good
Pumice and plants
Pumice looks good, I haven’t used yet. Two plants were beautiful and packed very well! Will order again at some point.
Better than Expected
In addition to the better-than-expexted quality of the pumice and activated charcoal I ordered, the plants purchased arrive in sublime condition. As a houseplant addict, I've ordered too many plants to count, and mostly online (because, you know... Covid), and I've never received plants so thoroughly packaged. They arrived in truly perfect shape, and I immediately placed a second order. Definitely a customer for life! Thank you, Pistils!
