We use this Perlite for Seed Starting to cover seeds the seeds in our seedlings trays. Perlite is a key component to any quality seed starting mix, but it also works very well as a seed covering in seed starting trays. This bag is 4 cubic feet and will last a while, but it stores well and doesn't degrade over time.

Using perlite to cover seeds has several advantages. It provides aeration to the seeds and keeps them from being too wet during the germination process. It also prevents a crust from forming on top of the seed starting cells, which is helpful when planting seeds that take a while to germinate.

If you're fertilizing your seedlings from overhead, the perlite will help to retain the fertilizer so it doesn't get washed from the cells as quickly via overhead watering. It also works well to prevent fungus gnats which can be a problem for some people when propagating cuttings or growing transplants.
