The patent-pending Enhanced Perlite Mix will be the first product introduced under the Harvest Hero brand, Dicalite’s new line of value-added soil amendments and growing media aimed at the cannabis industry.
The Enhanced Perlite Mix is a soilless media featuring a unique 3-in-1 formulation of perlite, diatomaceous earth and essential nutrients that support the first 30 to 40 days of growth without needing to add fertilizer.
Harvest Hero’s Enhanced Perlite Mix is the first direct-to-consumer product launch in the company’s 92-year history, with more to follow in 2021.
“The booming movement to legalize cannabis in the United States, in combination with a surge in at-home gardening, has created a market need for superior performing horticultural products,” said Dicalite president and CEO George Dethlefsen. “We believe we have achieved a breakthrough with how we combine these product ingredients that will supercharge growers’ harvests.”
