Is miracle grow vermiculite ok??
    #1653105 - 06/22/03 07:16 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I freind of mine picked up some miracle grow vermiculite yesterday.
The bag says its fortified with miracle grow plant food. Will this "plant food" hurt his experiments in any way???
Has anyone ever used this stuff before?

I've used it for everything EXCEPT the dry verm layer on top. That layer is, by definition, to be without moisture and nutrients, and the Miracle Gro stuff has nutrients added. I'd try to get some regular vermilculite, or use some pastuerization tek to pasteurize the Miracle Gro Verm that you were putting on top This isn't a sterility issue, it's just that this also removes alot ofthe water-soluable nutrients in the vermiculite.

As for other miracle grow products - Their perlite works as teh perlite in the bottom of the tank, no contams on it even tho it has some nutrients. The nutrient amount in both is so miniscule that it probbaly wouldn't even make a difference.
