Are you using the coarse or the fine variety?

I would keep it as it is to promote air exchange in the casing if thats what your using it for. Smaller bits of verm will clump together compared to the coarse verm that most people use. Good luck.

vermiculite crushes to nothing. take a piece and squeeze it - it will not go back to its original size. Result - it won't retain water very well (once ground up) - and as this is what you want in your casing layer I would venture to say no thats not something you want to do
