Pumice Grit, a versatile natural substrate being both exceptionally lightweight and light coloured. Ideal base for product imaging, plant composts and surfacing for Sci-fi and fantasy planets.

Pack size: 0,2kg

Grain Size: 2-4mm

Description: An exceptionally light weight and thermally insulating, natural micro-vesicular (bubbly) pumice grit. When incorporated into compost mixes the open honeycomb structure of the pumice allows for absorption of moisture which is slowly released as the compost dries out

Pumice grit provides for an adaptable model staging and image placement media.

Volume for volume pumice grit is in the order of one quarter of the weight of "normal" aggregate, providing maximum surface cover with minimum placement effort for Sci-Fi and fantasy planet staging.

The product contains predominantly rounded particles with a light grey/white honeycomb structure which will readily accept water based (acrylic), spray and oil based paints.

The product provides a low reflectance surface for photographic assignments with good clean item holding characteristics.

Being lightweight the product is easily cleared away with no special requirements for disposal.

When saturated for at least 24 hours Pumice Grit is likely to absorb approximately 30% by weight of water

Applications Include:

Seeds & Cuttings:
Pumice Horticultural Grit is both sterile and pH neutral making it an ideal moisture retaining compost component when planting seeds and cuttings. Its open honeycomb structure and low density ensures that it warms up more quickly than conventional stone based grits and also provides insulation aiding germination and protection of vulnerable seedlings.

Terrariums, bottle gardens and Vivariums :
Use as a moisture retentive gravel substrate and soil conditioner when planting both open glass containers and closed terrariums.
In the base of vivariums, use in place of plastic bead or heavy gravel substrate.
