Substitute for Vermiculite
    #2457740 - 03/21/04 05:50 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

What the Hell? It's like the entire city I live in decided to stop selling Vermiculite. I've been all over the place and I cannot seem to find it. I know I can order it online, but given time restraints (okay, well let's call it what it is: impatience.) does anyone know what can be used as a substitute for verm.? I've already learned that peat moss won't hold moisture long enough, so if anyone has any ideas and where (I'm looking for a place we know is dependable), if I must, that I can order the stuff online.

if your in a REAL pinch you can use perlite, but it sucks balls compared to verm. With this hobby you need to be patient. Just order the verm online (sorry i duno where, but a google search will find it) and wait for it to arrive. You'll regret it otherwise come harvest time

Well, it's for both, so I guess I'll order the stuff. Thanks for the prompt replies. I think I might try coco coir for the casing though. I've never tried it before.
