PLANTIT (PLANT!T) Vermiculite
Description / PLANTIT (PLANT!T) Vermiculite
Vermiculite is a natural, sterile soft mica mineral with great water holding and insulation properties. The high cation exchange capacity means that it will slowly release nutrients back to your plant after they've been absorbed during watering. Recommended for propagation when used as a top layer (reduces evaporation) and to help reduce plant stress in extreme weather conditions (due to insulation properties).
PLANT!T Vermiculite is easy and safe to handle, odourless, lightweight and simple to use.
We suggest using PLANT!T Vermiculite for the following purposes:
Propagation from seed – the relatively high retention of water makes it good for sustaining the growth of seeds.
Potting compost for container planting – it retains moisture, protects against adverse weather and aids re-wetting.
Soil conditioning – its excellent water holding capabilities makes this media an excellent addition to sandy or poor soils
