Vermiculite helps to aerate soil while simultaneously retaining water and nutrients, which it then releases over time. Vermiculite is therefore useful in seed sowing and propagation. It can also be added to house plant compost.

Vermiculite attracts and holds positively charged ions, like potassium, magnesium, calcium, and ammonium, releasing these vital elements to the plant roots. It even contains potassium and magnesium, which are then available as a supplemental slow-release supply of essential nutrients!

Vermiculite is a popular soil additive for houseplants and garden plants that improves soil texture and helps to grow healthy plants.

Benefits of Vermiculite

 

There are several benefits to using vermiculite, including:

 

  1. High water retention: Vermiculite can absorb up to four times its volume in water, making it an excellent choice for moisture retention in soil and potting mixes.
  2. Aeration: The lightweight structure of vermiculite allows for better aeration in soil mixes, promoting healthier root growth in plants.
  3. pH neutral: Vermiculite is chemically inert, meaning it won’t alter the pH of the soil.
  4. Insulation properties: Vermiculite’s fire-resistant and insulating properties make it a popular choice for construction and insulation applications.
  5. Non-toxic and environmentally friendly: Vermiculite is a natural, non-toxic material that poses minimal environmental risks.
