Why is it called Big & Chunky? Well, because FoxFarm uses extra-big chunks of perlite that provide the best drainage for superior root aeration. Use it in containers with quality potting soil to improve drainage, keep roots oxygenated, and prevent plants from becoming waterlogged.
Hydroponic growers know that Big & Chunky is the ultimate hydro grow medium. Use it as a stand-alone product or combine it with Light Warrior, and enjoy the added benefits of mycorrhizae. These beneficial fungi species promote root growth and enhance fertilizer uptake.
In containers, spread Big & Chunky in a one-inch layer along the bottom of the pot, then mix one part with four parts potting soil. Water thoroughly and allow soil mixture to settle before planting.
In hydroponics, fill pots with Big & Chunky, and position plant properly so its’ root system is supported in the medium. For seed starting and propagation, mix one part with three parts potting soil.
