Grow your favourite plants hydroponically using this incredible vermiculite solution which evenly distributes water throughout itself using capillary action!
How to use Vermiculite
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.
Can be used alone as a hydroponic growing medium or as a supplement to other growing mediums to increase moisture retention in regular soil.
Super absorbent - soaks up to 4 times its weight in water
Evenly distributes water, allowing for uniform aeration and moisture
Clean and sterile material
Can be re-used after washing
Large packs come in a compostable Bio bag. Small orders come in a brown paper bag. Zero waste
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.
Seeds grow very fast ,it feels like one minute you have a seed and the next you have a healthy plant ,I love growing my herbs hydroponically.
Arrived really quickly - super impressed!
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.
