Bonsai Vermiculite

What is it?

Vermiculite is exfoliated hydrated magnesium aluminum silicate. Like Groperl, it is extremely absorbent and lightweight, and can absorb many times its own weight in water. Unlike Groperl, it does retain nutrients. This coarse Vermiculite is ideal for use as a growing medium component in container plant culture as it promotes drainage. Vermiculite can be combined with other components such as Peat Moss or Lecafrom our Bonsai range to produce a soilless growing media for bonsai artists. These growing mediums promote enhanced root growth aided by Vermiculite’s effect on aeration. Any applied fertilizer is absorbed and is slowly released as the bonsai requires them.

How to use?

Alone or mixed with Peat Moss, Vermiculite can be used to germinate seeds.

As a growing medium component, it should constitute no more than 20% of the total mix or the other components must retain very little moisture, such as Leca from our Bonsai range.

Prevents mildew from infecting bulbs in storage.

    Good product

    After having read other reviews and Terry's description i decided to give this product a bash. Used it as a drainage layer at the bottom of the pot and so far seems to be doing exactly what i need it to. Thanks

    Vermiculite usage

    Hi there Terri I have been using Vermiculite for about a year and a half now as a growing medium for my bonsais. I'm in the process of changing my soil mixtures to more non-organic for pesticides etc. I found Vermiculite a good growing medium yet believe I have yet to understand it's full capabilities. Thank you for your informative blogs Kind regards Skye Wilson

    Cuttings

    So far so good. Terry recomended a 50/50 Vermiculite and groperl mix. Its a very light mix. Got the hang of it by using a wet mix before putting cuttings in. My fig cutting are still looking good with none of them loosing leaves or dying. Will see what happens next :)
