Vermiculite 8kg – South Africa
Horticultural grade Vermiculite has become a mainstay as a component of soilless growing mediums, as a soil amendment, and in many other horticultural uses. Vermiculite has the excellent property of improving soil aeration while retaining the moisture and nutrients necessary to feed roots, cuttings, and seeds for faster growth.
Vermiculite possesses cation exchange properties, thus it can hold and make available to the growing plant ammonium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. When mixed with peat, composted bark, organic compost, or natural soils, vermiculite like perlite helps promote faster root growth and gives quick anchorage to young roots. These mixes help retain air, plant food, and moisture and release them as needed by the plant. Because vermiculite is very light and easy to handle, it easily mixes with soil, peat, composted pine bark, and other composted organic materials, fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
