Perfect for propagation and water retention. Another firm favourite with keen gardeners is vermiculite. When you want to retain water, then add vermiculite to your chosen media. PLANT!T Vermiculite is a natural, sterile soft mica mineral with great water holding and insulation properties.
It also offers a high cation exchange capacity, which means that it will slowly release nutrients back to your plant that it has absorbed during watering.
Also reduces plant stress in bad weather conditions due to its insulation properties. Easy and safe to handle, odourless, lightweight and simple to use.
Propagation from seed, its retention of water makes it good for sustaining the growth of seeds
Potting compost for container planting, it holds moisture, protects against adverse weather and aids re wetting
Soil conditioning, its excellent water holding capabilities makes it a great addition to sandy or poor soils
Vermiculite soaks up water like a sponge. It holds that water until the soil starts to dry out then releases it.
This is good for moisture loving plants but not so good for plants that like dryer soil.
