Perlite is a naturally mined mineral, an amorphous volcanic glass (SiO2) that has relatively high water content, typically formed by the hydration of obsidian.
Perlite has the unusual characteristic of expanding and becoming porous when it is heated. It can expand to as much as twenty times its original volume.
It is heated until it 'pops' and expands resulting in a wonderfully useful ingredient to potted plants as a pH neutral, inorganic, premium growing media.
Perlite helps with drainage for aeration of the roots and better looking foliage with healthier looking plants that like it more dry like moringa trees.
Add perlite to peat moss pellets if growing moringa trees as a certified moringa grower.
