Has anyone ever used this instead of vermiculite?
I live in a small town and my hardware store only sells this. Its a lot heavier than the perlite I got, but its supposed to retain water pretty well. On the front of the bag it says "Better Than Vermiculite!"

This will be my first grow and I'm planning on doing PF Tek with 50/50 BRF and this, just wanted to know if its worth a shot or not.

No there is no substitute for verm.

It may however make a nice additive to casing mix.

Alright, thanks man.

I already bought a bag of it so I'll probably save it for some future casing project.

Guess I'm going to have to pay some massive shipping to get some sent up here. :frown:

Have you tried: Home Depot, True Value, garden centers?

Unfortunately the nearest Home Depot is 300 miles away and we only have one store here that sells anything garden-related, the mom and pop hardware store.

Or maybe you meant online Home Depot?

Haha, no, but pretty close, Alaska actually.

Thanks for your help.

Ordering really isn't a big deal to me, I'm used to paying $15 shipping on crap worth $10.
