Benefits of adding pumice to your soil

  • Pumice contains very few trace minerals, and does not break down. Instead of adding nutrients, pumice improves soil structure.
  • Loosens heavy soil. It also keeps the soil from compacting, even when laden with water, thereby improving aeration.
  • Improve drainage in any kind of soil, and prevents soil from becoming waterlogged even in heavy rains or excessive irrigation.
  • Retains excess moisture within its porous structure. Pumice acts like a sponge, holding water until the plants need it. Then it releases that water steadily into the soil. Its unique structure can reduce your garden’s watering needs by up to 35%.
  • Pumice is also useful as an attractive, long lasting, and beneficial mulch.
  • An addition to your compost pile to mitigate odors and regulate moisture, and mixed in your worm bin’s bedding.

How to Use Pumice in the Soil

  • Adding as little as 10% pumice to any garden soil mix is enough to see the benefits.
  • For succulents, use up to half pumice in your potting soil.
  • You can use it straight out of the bag, or you can saturate it with nutrients and beneficial microbes first, a process called activating or supercharging. To activate your pumice, simply soak it in a nutrient solution such as compost tea for at least 24 hours before mixing it into your garden soil.
