Description
Improved Drainage and Aeration: This medium coarse vermiculite is a lightweight mineral that can be added to potting soil to improve drainage and aeration. This is important for the healthy growth of plants because it allows roots to breathe and prevents soil compaction.
Enhanced Water Retention: Vermiculite can hold up to four times its weight in water, which means that it can help to retain moisture in potting soil. This is particularly beneficial for plants that require consistent moisture, as it can help to reduce the need for frequent watering.
Increased Nutrient Retention: Vermiculite has a high cation exchange capacity (CEC), which means that it can hold onto nutrients such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium. This can help to provide a steady supply of nutrients to plants over time.
pH Neutral: Vermiculite is pH neutral, which means that it does not affect the acidity or alkalinity of potting soil. This can be beneficial for plants that have specific pH requirements.
Versatile: This is a versatile material that can be used in a variety of ways. It can be added to potting soil, used as a growing medium for plant propagation / cuttings, store bulbs over winter, added to worm bins, and even used as small pet bedding for hamsters, gerbils and birds.
Overall, vermiculite is an excellent addition to potting soil for a wide range of plants, including vegetables, flowers, and houseplants. Its ability to improve drainage, aeration, water retention, and nutrient retention make it a valuable tool for any indoor gardener looking to create healthy and vibrant plants.
