Sub-Optimal Conditions

The GrowDog Soil Perlite Compost blend also acts to insulate your plant's roots, helping to protect it against cooler, winter temperatures. For the best results, we recommend using tube heaters and wireless thermostats along with a air movement dan to help maintain a consistent growing environment for your plants.

Garden tip: Generally speaking, indoor plants perform their best when you maintain daylight growing temperatures around 25C (77F), and ensure nighttime temperatures don't dip below 18C (64F).

Suitable Growing Systems for GrowDog Soil Perlite Potting Compost

In general, the GrowDog soil perlite potting compost works best with infrequent watering. This professional quality potting mix has excellent drainage properties. We recommend that you soak the entire media, then let your pots dry out before you feed again; maintain an oscillating wet and dry cycle.

Recirculation Systems

If you're using a re-circulating system with GrowDog Soil Perlite Potting Compost, we recommend using a suitable filter. Smaller particles can soon clog feed and/or return lines.

Dripper Systems

If you're using GrowDog soil perlite potting mix with a dripper system, we recommend that you water the media thoroughly. Then allow the media to dry before feeding well again at the next feed.

Hand Watering Containers & Pots

If you're using hand watering GrowDog Soil Perlite Potting Compost, we recommend that you water the media thoroughly. Then allow the media to dry before feeding well again at the next feed.

Using GrowDog Soil Perlite Potting Compost

This professional potting compost mix uses 20% perlite to add exceptional drainage and water retention properties. We recommend that once you feed your plants, you let the pots dry out before feeding again. In nature, soil-grown plants are exposed to a natural oscillating wet and dry cycle.

The bags can become compacted during transportation. Before decanting the substrate into your growing vessel, we suggest you fluff up the medium and break up any larger bits. You can do this while the bag is closed by tapping the sides like how you would fluff up a pillow.

For the Best Results Pair GrowDog Soil Perlite With GrowDog Nutrients & Boosters

For the best results, we recommend using the GrowDog range of nutrients and boosters.

Garden tip: Ensure that any nutrient you use with GrowDog Soil Perlite Potting compost is formulated to use with soil.

Do I Need To Change The Compost in Containers and Pots Every Year?

It is best practice to replace the compost in containers and pots every year. Giving your plants fresh GrowDog potting compost provides them with fresh nutrients that they can access right away. Being pre-fertilized makes GrowDog Soil Perlite Potting Compost perfect for refreshing your container and potted plants. It's light enough to make it easy to work with and suits the vast majority of plants.
