The skinny on vermiculite?
    #1501008 - 04/28/03 04:46 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hi everyone! I am in the midst of conjuring up another legion of P. Cubensis, and I need to bounce something off of the group. Specifically, have you noticed how difficult it is to find vermiculite in the stores these days? I live in large city with numerous lawn and garden centers, and most of them no longer carry vermiculite (either the course or the fine grade). My last call was to a small family-run gardening center, and they informed me that stores are no longer allowed to carry it because of asbestos concerns. Is this true? If so, what is the best "Plan B" given a possible moritorium on vermiculite?

Thanks!

P.S. Ever the cautious soul, I have started wearing a paint mask whenever I handle vermiculite. Is this warranted, or am I being too paranoid?

The only kind of brand of vermiculite i could find here was sta-green, and they changed it this season, its all premoistened, i really don't like it as much..
