The Soil.Ninja Guide to Vermiculite

Introducing the Ultimate Thirst-Quencher for Green Beauties. Vermiculite, with its captivating shapes and luxurious touch, has earned a special place in our hearts. But what's the buzz about this valuable element?

This remarkably exquisite ingredient has been a staple in horticulture for decades, thanks to its lightweight presence in soil blends and its effectiveness in seed starting.

Now, let's delve into its applications! This incredibly hydrophilic amendment possesses a strong affinity for water storage. When moistened, the vibrant, small particles expand in an accordion-like manner, promoting aeration in the soil blend. Most importantly, this splendid substance retains moisture for prolonged periods, gradually releasing water and nutrients into the soil, even days after watering. It becomes an absolute oasis for moisture-dependent roots, such as those of Alocasia and Ferns!

Vermiculite also shines as an excellent seed starting material. It preserves nutrients and minerals within its structure, allowing delicate, newly formed roots to access and benefit from them. With a perfectly balanced pH level of 7-7.5, you can rest assured that there will be no extreme fluctuations in pH, whether you use it in a soil blend or as a standalone medium for tender seedlings.

Do your parched plants yearn for this magical elixir?

To Summarise:

• Exceptional at retaining and holding moisture
• Efficiently releases moisture and nutrients back into the soil
• Maintains a neutral pH of 7-7.5
• Ideal for thirsty plants
