    Instructions

    Vermiculite is best used in applications where a pot or growing bed needs to be filled with a growing medium. For example in hydroponics vermiculite  can be used in a wicking bed system where water from the water basin below is sucked into the upper reservoir by a wick or the vermiculite itself. 

    It can also be mixed in with other growing mediums such as perlite to get a cross between the main features of the mediums (perlite has great aeration/oxygenation properties, and vermiculite has great water absorption and retention properties) - mixing them together means you can suit your growing medium based on the characteristics of the plant that you are growing.

      Excellent. The customer service specialist was patient and answered all my questions. Guided me through the process and explained how to use products.

      Awesome!

      I’ve had great success with this product, I thought the rock wool was good but this is great. Germinates seeds quickly and easily, retains water and doesn’t seem to go green and fuzzy over time!

      No Soil - use vermiculite instead

      I always liked gardening, but after scaling down and retiring I found hydroponic-gardening is a blessing. Vermiculite is very easy to handle (light in weight) and the plants seem to thrive with it.

      Reusable and versatile

      Love my smart soil! I have rewashed it and reused it a few times and still things grow great. I would probably only get 4 uses out of it though, as the vermiculite starts to get smaller and smaller after multilple uses.

      More than I needed

      The large bag came in a nice reusable cloth bag which I didn't see coming but loved! Really good for keeping my veggies fresh in the fridge.
