Perlite is often used as an additive to soilless mixes or soil to increase aeration and drainage and may be used by itself in continuous flow hydroponics systems. Because it does not retain water well, it is often combined in a 50/50 mixture with vermiculite.

Unlike perlite, vermiculite retains water well, perhaps too well to be used by itself. Both vermiculite and perlite are inexpensive, and combining the two makes a very popular and effective medium for drip and ebb and flow systems.

Vermiculite and perlite must be rinsed thoroughly before use and care should be taken not to inhale the dust as it is hazardous to ones health. It is important to buy horticultural grade products, as those produced for other purposes often do not have a stable PH and will make maintaining proper pH in the system very difficult.
