Home Depot : Brand names for Perlite or Vermiculite ?
    #1243224 - 01/23/03 03:24 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Was wondering if anyone knew of a brand name for vermiculite that I should look out for when going to Home Depot?

also :: any suggestions for Perlite also? Is this sold at Home Depot?

thanks! :smile:

Home Depot sells both, and you'll want to look for Hoffman brand, yet any brand will really suffice.

I'm just wondering because I have no idea what they look like [texture/etc. etc.] except from what I see in pictures.......

just making sure I don't grab one with wrong additives or something in them, that would hurt the process. :smile:

I bought hoffmans and it is really small vermiculate, you need to add a little bit more water than usual to prevent your jars from drying out and stopping colonization.

It's made by Pursells and I purchased that bag at Lowes.
Here's a photo that shows the size of the particles. The measuring tape is in inches.
