Vermiculite Size=Problem?
    #1293063 - 02/09/03 10:18 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I just went out to buy everything I would need for my grow, and the only place I was able to find vermiculite was Menards. Well, the vermiculite at Menards was "ground up". It wasn?t in powder form, like the brown rice flower, yet it wasn?t in the solid chunks that I normally see in pictures of grows. I was just wondering if this would cause a problem. 
PS - Are BALL jars expensive, because the cheapest set I could find was $8 for 12.

I love you all. Thanks in advance.  :wink:  :grin:

generally fine grain verm is best for substrate and coarse verm is best for casing layers.

you're getting ripped off 8 bucks for 12 jars, you should have to pay over 6.

do you mean fine grade verm? this is fine. i like to use course grade for the substrate and fine grade for the contam protection layer...but it really doesn't matter.

*EDIT* zandorf is right about the coarse being better for a casing layer...the fine stuff can "seal" up

You can use it. Just don't pack it down at all. Try to keep it loose so the mycellium has room to grow with ease. You should be fine. Good luck !!!

Word Up. I thought I was getting robbed by paying $8. I wonder if K-mart sells KURR or BALL 1/2 pint jars... anyone know the best place to buy this type of object. Also, thank you both for the insight over the vermiculite. I would describe it as fine grade. I'll be sure to be carefull with the vermiculite, so as not to seal up any part of the jar and not allow any air exchange.
Thanks again!

it's easier to fuck up fine grain.
