Pro-Mix - Vermiculite 9L
Vermiculite is a natural mineral that is mined from the earth. It is made up of thin, flat layers of mica, which are minerals that form in thin, plate-like crystals. When the vermiculite ore is heated, the layers of mica expand and become porous, forming a lightweight, spongy material that is often used in horticulture and construction.
In gardening, vermiculite is often used as a soil amendment. When mixed with soil, it helps to improve the structure of the soil and increases its ability to hold water and nutrients. It also helps to improve drainage, which can be particularly beneficial in heavy or compacted soils.
Vermiculite is an excellent choice for starting seeds, rooting plant cuttings, and growing plants in containers. It is very lightweight, which makes it easy to work with, and it is also very effective at retaining moisture, which can help to reduce the frequency of watering.
Overall, vermiculite is a versatile and useful material for gardeners, and it can be used in a variety of different applications to help improve soil structure, promote plant growth, and reduce the need for frequent watering.SKU: PRO408-9111
