Before you give up try a garden or nursery specality shop.
Farm stores seem to carry it also. Its hard to find for some
but keep looking if you'd prefer to buy it localy. My buddy
was about to give up and buy online and lucked out. :smile2:

if you cant find vermiculite, maybe you might find an interest in doing grains, like rye berries or wild bird seed!

I found vermiculite in the garden section of Lowe's, and Home Depot, and once, even, in Wal-Mart. I'd just keep looking - it's soooo cheap, and works great.

I tried two local Home Depots and neither had vermiculite. I ended up finding mine at a Wal-Mart.

The thing I'm having trouble finding is desiccant! Anyone have any idea where I can find it? I usually get strange looks whenever asking for it at a store. I've tried several hardware stores and a Wal-Mart.

The wind told me that it's readily available at both Home Depot and Walgreens under the brand names "Damprid" and "Drierite."

I'd recommend just looking harder, ordering it off the net can be a bitch in shipping charges if you need alot. It can be found in places like lowes and home depot, but a few carriers no longer carry it becuase it's the winter, but of course will carry it again in spring.
