Just because someone somewhere on the internets uses vermiculite as packaging doesn't mean it's true. Sure some people may use it, but there is also some people that still believe today that the earth is flat. Also all sources on the internet aren't credible. If this were some shipping company then you'd have your support.

True, but.. I was wrong, and I admit it. I honestly had never heard of such a thing, because it seems that, at least in my eyes, the potential health risks far outweigh the benefits. But clearly that is not true in some cases, particularly when shipping hazardous chemicals that need to be absorbed in the event of a leak.

I am in the same boat as the poster...

I live in Wichita, KS. I went to 3 Wally worlds, 3 Home Depots, 1 Lowe's and 2 Gardening nurserys... none of them had vermiculite (hell, I didn't see any perlite either, but wasn't looking as close).

local.google.com shows me two websites that mention verm, but don't sell it...

i've heard of people using cut up pieces of a paper towel and perlite instead of verm.
