vermiculite....
    #4297334 - 06/15/05 12:54 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

anyone had experience using Sta-Green brand vermiculite? it doesnt look right to me, its too fine. if i pick up a handful and dump it back into the bag, my hand is covered with this really fine powder. im having a hard time finding any that is coarser. went to home depot, lowes and walmart (and just about any other place with a garden center) of those, lowes was the only place that even carried verm...

any suggestions?
i live in central texas, if that helps any..

It should work.

I get the same kind...I've noticed that it's either thick or really thin...

Best to use a combo. of both...But that'll work.

Id suggest buying online from a hydroponic place, if you can.. The brands I buy locally are all to fine for my tastes...so I get horticultural grade from a hydro store and you get nice and chunky stuff. If you cant buy online, that stuff will work.

Ive currently got a bag like that, all powder no real chunks. Try looking for a very large nursery. That seems to be the only place around me i can find good verm.

Guess it depends on where you live. My town on the other hand... I went to about 10 stores that had
verm in my area and they all had the exact same brand.


Which I find to be horticultural grade.

Except Lowes, which is the only store that had the fine grade.

The "horticultural" grade I find in stores is NOT the hotricultural grade I get offline ordering from a hydro shop. The stuff I find in stores isn't "fine" by verm definition, but it isnt the chunky hort grade that I like.

Hoffmans, is the only brand you can find around here locally...and its "hort grade" too...but its realy not IMO.
