So i'm about to run out the door to pick up this week's 6 bags of vermiculite from lowes when i think "Man, there must be an easier way." Anyone know where i can buy vermiculite in larger volume? :pennydrop:

Im sorry but I dont really have your information. I'v been buying my vermiculite from lowes and other garden places for a while. I'm sure there is a wholesale place that sells it in 50 lbs bags somewhere. If you find one lemme know. Thanks.

I found a huge, HUGE bag at a local garden center and a hydroponics store. Only $20 or so. It was way more than I needed for my little cakes, so I got their little bag. Just call around you will find that big bag.

YES! I do! The Farmers Exchange, Kennewick Washington. They sell VERY large bags of vermiculite (larger than the 50lb bags of dog food that they sell at supermarkets). Thing is massive. Call em up if you can. Or follow the link above ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is what they have:
VERMICULITE!!!



It's a 24 LB bag of vermiculite (4 cubic feet!) for about 30$. I'm sure you could swing something. If you want some info like the phone number to this place.... I can get it for you.

Good luck in your hunt!!

yes a phone # would be great. here in the northeast, supplies are starting to run a little thin. most places are not even carrying it anymore. i use it for cloning too, so i bought every bag i could find in my immediate area. i suppose by mail will work just a little more pricey with shipping and all. greatly appreciate the hook up. thanks sam and scat both.

Building supply store, ask if they carry mica-flake insulation for the wall behind your fireplace.

sam thanks for the hook up. going to give them a call and see what happens.
i know verm is ground mica, but does this mica-flake insulation have asbestos in with it. there is some controversy going on with verm containing asbestos. what is the community opinion?
thanks again guys

The Libby Montana Verm mine that contained asbestos was shut down YEARS AGO. Any verm you buy in a store NOW.... contains NO ASBESTOS.

Thats a FACT.. :thumbup:
