cant find verm in central texas
    #2413069 - 03/10/04 01:08 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I was trying to help a friend, start growing. We went to home depot, lowes, and a local nursery. The dude at the nursery said that vermiculite was deemed carcinagenic, and taken off the market. so were screwd now...

Frank's has vermiculite all the time "aspestose free". if you still cant find it you can order it online. Or even better, just dont use it. of course to do that you would have to skip cake's altogether and move right to casings.

either check the garden section of the stores or the insulation sectioin of stores. I never found any in the insulation section but a guy that worked at home depot told it would be there. it wasn't. i know someone in northtexas..in the lewisville coppell flowermound irving area they sell it at all homedepot's if you want to drive out there.

I remember being told once about a shipment of vermiculite being accidently contaminated with asbestos, and there being a huge scare over it. A few places still don't stock it due to fear, but i think you should be able to find it; if you have real trouble, try and find a hydroponics store in a big city, they'll have it for sure, or you could buy it online if you don't mind da bucks for postage

Most of the bigger stores don't seem to carry it in my area either.  I drove around aimlessly for hours looking with no luck, so I went home.  Then what I did was pull up www.citysearch.com and type in my location, and searched for nurseries.  After about 5 phonecalls, I found some little hole in the wall garden store that carried it in 10qt bags for 4 bucks. 

Another option you could try if no luck there is order some online.  It is fairly lightweight so shouldn't cost much for shipping.  I remember seeing it on the ace hardware website for like 7 bucks I think.  Maybe try there.  :smile:

I have had the same trouble and the guy at Home Depot told me vermiculite is hard to come by during winter. I ended up ordering online and got 2 big bushels for cheap.

I had a hell of a time finding vermiculite in the middle of the winter. Even Frank's was bare. I emailed them about getting some in to my local store and after 3 days Frank himself e-mailed me back saying all stores would be receiving shipments in the next couple weeks--and that was probably 2 months ago. I found it before then in a little nursury/grow shop.

this is hilarious. ive NEVER had a problem getting it, the nursury down the street always has bags and bags of it. i dont really understand why you wouldnt be able to get it in the winter, maybe the people youre talking to dont really know shit and are just acting like they do... or maybe not. just look in local nursuries and shit cause i never see it at any big stores.

Hey, I had the same problem also for a while (live in Austin, TX)... If you live in Austin, go to the nursery with the pink flamingos (you'll know what I'm talking about if you live here.) I always bought them out about 8 or 9 bags at a time. Also, give "Texas Hydroponics" http://texashydroponics.com a check, I'm sure they have some in stock. Good luck!
