Qualitative soil is the basis for a successful cultivation cycle. Poor quality soil has negative consequences for the production of your crops. In addition to the nutrients that are incorporated in the potting soil, the structure, drainage and water retention capacity are very important. For good growth of your crops it is important that the potting soil has a balanced mixture of oxygen and water. If the earth is too wet, that reduces the oxygen that can be used. However, if the soil is too dry and does not retain water, it can cause the roots to damage and dry out.
Adding perlite to your soil can improve drainage and water retention. Perlite is a rock that is very light and airy and increases the oxygen that can be used for the plant.
