Perlite is an amorphous volcanic glass which has a relatively high water content and occurs naturally. It has one of the most unusual property, i.e. it greatly expands when sufficiently heated
Perlite becomes soft, as it is a glass, at a temperature of 850-900°C. The trapped water in the structure of perlite escapes and makes the material to expand 7 - 15 times of its original volume. The expanded material is brilliant white in color because of the reflectivity of the trapped bubbles.
The density of raw perlite or the unexpanded perlite is around 1100 kg/m3 (1.1 g/cm3). The density of typically expanded perlite is 30 - 150 kg/m3.
Since Perlite has low density and is relatively economical, it is used in Horticulture in following ways:
Active Silicon is a amorphous Silica based soil enricher- conditioner that supplies plant available silica to plant. Although Silicon is in abundant element but it is mostly locked up in crystalline form and plant available Silica is only available from amorphous Silica.
Silica improves nutrient efficiency of other fertilizers by absorbing nutrients and slowly releasing them when required. Plant available silica actively boosts plants ability to withstand stresses from disease, insects and environmental pressure. It increases water retention and provides improved aeration in soil.
Collectively these benefits of Active Silicon Soil Conditioner increases yield and quality of crops and plants. Active Silicon Soil Conditioner is the only growing medium that energizes and actually feeds your plants.

Gro Smart Coco Peat is an organic perfect growing medium for Vegetables, Flowers and Other Plants.
Coco Peat is used as a soil replacement and largely used for Gardening Soil, Mushroom Farming and Greenhouse Cultivation.
The cocopeat can hold large quantities of water, just like a sponge
Coco peat is a one of the best land culture for all type of green house and hydroponic farming . Coco peat is a good product for terrace garden and hanging pots. It is also used as soil enhancer product .
Diatomite Rock is a naturally mined mineral composed entirely of the skeletal remains of trillions of microscopic, unicellular plankton called diatoms. The porous aggregate particles wet rapidly and will absorb greater than 100% of their own weight in water, which they freely release to the surrounding soil and plant roots. It is Non toxic and contain Silica. Diatomite protects against rot, and can slowly release silica to orchids that love it. It is often used as a component in other orchid media.
With an ideal particle size of 10 mm - 25 mm , Diatomite Rock acts as a water and nutrient reservoir for plant roots enabling them to withstand common environmental stresses, such as drought and temperature extremes, more easily. Indefinitely stable and non-compactable, Diatomite Rock permanently improves the structure, drainage and oxygen exchange of heavy soils and horticultural growing media.
