Rooting plants in perlite

Perlite creates excellent conditions for the development of the root system, both as a homogeneous substrate and in a mixture with soil. Rooting plants in perlite is extremely simple, you can use, for example, two plastic disposable cups. In one you need to make holes, the other serves as a stand. Place the seedling in the pre-soaked perlite in a cup with holes. Put the cup prepared in this way into another cup, which will prevent excess water from spilling out. We make sure that the substrate does not dry out too much by adding water from time to time. So if we plan to propagate the plant to seedlings, perlite will work great.
