Substitute 4 Vermiculite?
    #3369412 - 11/16/04 05:11 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hello people

I find it very hardd to get some vermiculite here. Searched google and in the neighbourhood it is only available for high prices. (like 2,5? a liter, is like 3$ for two pints)

Are there any substitutes for vermiculite to use in casings? Such as crushed geolite maybe? Or perlite?
Someone has suggestions bout this?

Would be cool if geolite can be used, I bought a 100 liter bag.. :wink:

Shultz moisture control, is probably a substitute. Must be even harder to get here in Holland..

But will have look, thanks!

polyacrylamide crystals (kind of plastic) is what actually the Shultz moisture control is.

Now I did a search in Google and it appears that acrylamide is dangerous for the health. It damages fertility by test animals, since polyacrylamide is used to purify water as well there are regulations of how much acrylamide there may be in the drinkwater. It is used in some cosmetics where some websites warn about the danger for the health of people using products with polyacrylamide in it....

Lot of other info, I am not so sure if this is a very good thing to use. Will hunt more on verm I think! :P

(suggestion: Google, polyacrylamide health)
