Verm out of stock crisis.
    #11252813 - 10/15/09 02:26 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I've been to..

Lowes
Home Depot
Local hydroponic shops
even....Walmart

The point is, NONE of them carry vermiculite anymore!  I don't want to buy it online because of the extra cost of shipping. (I am a penny pincher because this is just a hobby)  I did find an organic shop that had long grain brown rice.  I don't think using just BR would hold enough water and eventually lead to stalling jars.

But I DO have a blender :smile:.  Has anyone ever tried replacing vermiculite with cardboard?  No comments about using WBS instead please.

I read everything I get it super cheap online and that should be your next step if you can't find it locally duhhh

As far as cardboard that is not a substitute for verm..

You ask a retarded question then bitch at someone who posts an actual logical answer?

There is no crisis you just don't know how to shop. I just got a 28lb bag from a local nursery myself.

Ace Hardware also sells it.

Also, like previously mentioned it is widely available online.

I did a quick location search of Ace's Tardware, a 45 minute drive for a single bag of vermiculite. Don't rage here please. I'm asking a simple question and I get a bunch of retarded answers.

I don't see how cardboard became a ridiculous idea. I've used it plenty of times for isolation.

you have another option...

you can call one of the major manufacturers(thermorock) of Verm...

and find out where it is sold near you.


They will give you a list of local places near you that sell their products.

:smile:



their phone number is on their web site...

Cardboard is nutritious and is used to grow on.. Verm is used to hold onto water in a BRF/VERM cake..

Also if it is a 45 minute drive for verm it may be worth it depending on the size bag you get. I get 4 cubic feet and it lasts for nearly 4-6 months.
