The perfect, lightweight media for aerating ANY mix!

Perlite is the generic name for naturally occurring siliceous volcanic rock. AUSPERL is pleased to offer various grades of perlite ore from which expanded perlite products are produced.

We operate our own quarry, in the central North Island of New Zealand as well as importing perlite ore for specific applications from Turkey, Greece and the USA.

The expansion process is caused by the presence of water in the crude rock. When perlite ore is rapidly heated to above 850°c this water vaporises and causes the softened rock to expand. Tiny glass-like bubbles are produced which account for the lightweight and exceptional physical properties of expanded perlite.

One-Stop Shop for Potting Mix

Got my perlite, as well as a bunch of other things for my aroid potting mix and pest control. Happy I could buy everything in one place and not have to shop around different sites or stores to get everything. Thank you, Dr Greenthumbs!

Beginner here. It's a great price on the perlite and nice and clean throughout, didn't find any contaminants yet. It's light for the volume. My bag is a single 100L item like you see. At the moment I am using a 70 / 30 ratio and will see how it performs. Pieces are about the size of fish pebbles, so perhaps better for the potting mixes than seed starter. There is a medium grade version too which I think could be better for that. I'm using it in an outdoor container arrangement and am hoping it will do well!

Don't forget the dust mask while working, but it's not bad if you're not dumping it out in one go. Didn't give me any problems.

By the way, the customer service took great care making sure the products got through and they arrived quickly. Extra points on that end!


Well packaged, great product! Would love to see an even chunkier perlite added to the site. Overall really great product and is amazing compared to the big box stores perlite. Highly recommend!
