I can't find any vermiculite anywhere. I live in a relatively small city in kansas, we have an ace hardware, walmart, k-mart, and a few greenhouses here and there. I've searched ace hardware and all the greenhouses, is vermiculite called vermiculite on the bag you purchase it in? is there any viable substitute for vermiculite, or better yet a cheaper one? Does walmart and/or k-mart carry vermiculite? i can't go see because my liscense is suspended i'd have to walk, and i dont want to walk several miles and say oh shit. I NEED TEH VERMICULITEZ. btw anyone recommend a brand? any help would be helpful, if this post is irrelivent or stupid just delete it admins i'm new to this forum and just trying to find mah way around.

Every walmart I've been in carries Vermiculite.

It will say Vermiculite in large letters on the bag. Check around the soil an' stuff. If you ask a worker where it is, he's definately going to ask what it's for, tell him that it's added to top soil to help retain moisture.. that might give him an idea of where it is in the store.

I like fine grade vermiculite, but others like coarse, it's all a matter of opinion.

A great place for all your shopping needs is usually a feed-n-seed store, Im not sure what part of the country your in but the guy I always go to told me that vermiculite is rare this time of year, and he had to order a bag for me. Enough verm. for a year for 14.95!

It must be just because I live in Pennsylvania around a lot of agriculture that it's so easy to find.

Ever since I began looking for it, it's in basically all stores that have a garden center here (which is a lot).

i have never seen verm in any type of mart store or home depot myself.. the only place i've found it is in the feed store, or really good garden centers.

i've never seen it in any walmart, especially since schultz stopped making it. i live in NJ. and even like when i was at a wal-mart in TN they didnt have any. I was going to bonnaroo i was just curious :wink:

so yeah i dont kknow alot of places sell it online Good Luck

-mike

also if you really cant find it look into other options like straw or even WBS cased in just coco coir

Not all Home Depots and Wal-Marts carry it. Both in my area don't.

Thankfully, Fred Meyer carries Whitney Farms brand vermiculite. Fred Meyer is a regional thing though, so YMMV.
