  1. Question

    Kelly A (verified owner)

    Is it typical for pumice to discolor over time due to exposure to water? While I typically use it as a soil component, I use it as a top dressing for a few of my succulents (and also as part of a design in an outdoor succulent garden) and I’ve noticed over time that the edges of the pumice have changed to a dark yellow, rusty kind of color. It’s only happening in the areas that are exposed to water (doesn’t seem to matter if it’s rain water, distilled, tap, etc.). Is this normal? Note that the color change retains even if the pumice has completely dried (after being rained on or watered).

      Thanks for the message. Pumice rarely stays bright white. Iron in the water and or in the newly mined pumice will cause it to change to a rust color. You dont see this with lava, which is loaded with iron, because its not pure white. This is why pumice is not really used as a top dressing. iron is everywhere including natural stone and water sources.

      I hope this helps. Please call or email if you have questions or concerns.

      Thanks
      Jack
