Par Boiled Rice Hulls by the bale 

Studies have proven that rice hulls can efficiently replace perlite in your potting soil mixes and is much better for the environment.

We have independently heavy metal tested the contents and will only work with PBH for our rice hulls because of how clean they have tested. Beware of cheap rice hulls potentially full of heavy metals.

How To Use

To be used as aeration at 30% of total soil volume
