Vermiculite is a natural mineral, expanded in a heating process. It's mineralogical name is hydrated laminarmagnesium-aluminum-ironsilicate. (In case you ever need to know!)
Vermiculite has many uses, but is of interest in horticulture due to these attributes: ¤ Inorganic, and sterile. ¤ No known toxicity or fire hazard. ¤ High water holding capacity. ¤ Absorbs excess nutrients. ¤ Facilitates re-wetting. ¤ Low alkalinity. ¤ High cation-exchange capacity. ¤ Does not deteriorate in storage (if kept dry). ¤ Free from disease, weeds and insects. ¤ Good air holding capacity. ¤ Insulates and minimizes soil temperature fluctuations.
It is used in seed raising mix and propagating mix to allow good root development.
