wheres the vermiculite???
    #1742527 - 07/23/03 09:56 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

there must be a god damn shortage on vermiculite in the east coast area---because i cant find this shit anywhere anymore they use to sell it at lowes---but now a month later they say they dont sell it anymore---
------------SSSMMMMMMAAACCCKKKK------
N -E -ways---- i seen some ground up corn cobs---for like the bottom of critters cages----and was wondering would this corn-cob stuff hold water like verm dose---and thus could be used as a substitute for vermiculite??? or would it mush up and sog all to hell???

I had to search for like a fucking week until I found it. Someplace will have it though. Start hitting up nurseries and feed stores.

I finally found a fucking 20 lb bag of the shit. It'll last me the whole year! Its huge!

I went to home depot and asked them where they had a bag of verm because I couldn't find it and their answer was that nobody makes it no more because it gives canser to the miners. I don't think you can buy it no more in any of those big stores finally I got the last bag from some samll flower shop.

I to looked around I'm from the east coast to mid alantic area and it was hard to find . Went to all the big stores and had no luck. Finnaly I was about to try something like you said with something off the wall and I was walking through lowes looking for some potting soil for the old ball and chain there it was three bags of the shit. I got all three and ran out of there like I robbed the place. I think we do have to find some other substute for it and quick!!!!!!

I've found it a few places that had it just in like 4cu. ft. bags.

Frank's nursery has it if you have one near you.

There's no shortage at all in Canada (east coast). I can find verm anywhere. Home Depot (and all similar grand surface hardware store), Wal-Mart, etc...

You US guys still have some at Wal-Mart?

Yeah I called up a Home Depot here on the east coast and they said against state regulations they couldn't carry it. Then I called another, smaller chain of local hardware stores and they had it for $11 in 4cu.ft bags. But they only had like 1 bag. I ended up buying it in fucking maryland in a Safeway. A 5-6 hour drive away from here. And it was something like $4 for a fucking 8 qt bag. It sucks.

two vermiculite mines were found to have asbestos contamination. these mines have been closed and it's more or less business as usual for the rest, minus a few major retail chains. you can find it at nursery/garden centers, also in hydroponics stores. call around first and save yourself some legwork

God, people just don't look hard enough. You can find vermiculite at any nursery and gardening store, just about -- Frank's always has it, Home Depot sometimes does. Look at the smaller stores, not the massive superstores.

i just bought a bag a couple of days ago at Lowe's .. they carry a different brand than they did a bit ago

what kind of substitute? what do you plan on using the vermiculite for? If youre just using it to case something then peat moss is a decent substitute.. If youre using it as a seal in the pf-style tek, then there is no good substitute.

I'm glad I live in Texas where getting verm isn't a prob, looks like its time to order online for some of you guys.

A friend was at a local hardware store where he usually buys verm and they said it was takin off the market due to it leads to some sort of disease?

Anybody heard this? Is it an airborne thing from the dust, or is it something that is consumed by using vermiculite to cultivate fruits/vedgatables/mushrooms?
