Pumice is a porous volcanic rock with a neutral pH level and is comprised of highly vesicular strands permeated with tiny air bubbles. The tiny pores on the surface of the pumice act as microscopic reservoirs to absorb and store nutrient-rich moisture and minerals. Size: (1mm to 11mm)
Pumice is a natural growing media that provides a balance of moisture retention, gas exchange, and draining capabilities. Using pumice stones as a growing media can improve the quality of the soil. It is especially beneficial for succulents and cactus plants.
