Vermiculite is an odorless, fireproof mineral substance. Along with another naturally occurring substance, perlite, it's often added to potting soil. Vermiculite provides many benefits. These include:
Every gardener knows that water and air are an essential component of growing vigorous, healthy plants. However, many gardens and soil mixes don’t have the necessary constituents to ensure the healthy growth of plants.
What is Vermiculite? Vermiculite is a mineral (aluminum-iron, magnesium), which is mined and processed into granules that may be mixed into the soil to aid in aeration and drainage as well as adding often needed nutrients to the soil.
Organic Vermiculite by GARDENERA is the ideal substrate for growing seedlings, providing them with the moisture and sir they need to thrive.
You can add your vermiculite directly to flowerbeds in the garden, or use it as an amendment in potting soils. Adding vermiculite to the spoil mix improves moisture retention and aeration of the soil, allowing for the rapid growth of the plant’s roots.
It’s common for garden centers and nurseries to include the use of perlite in soil mixes. Vermiculite offers the gardeners the same properties, but with better moisture retention. While vermiculite may not provide as much aeration to the roots of the plant, it’s the top-choice soil amendment where moisture retention is a concern.
Add vermiculite to soil for conditioning and lightening either alone or in conjunction with peat or compost. This will accelerate the growth and promote anchorage for tender young root systems. Using vermiculite as growing medium will also enable the plant to more easily absorb the ammonium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium necessary for vigorous growth.
Medium grade vermiculite can be used directly for root cuttings. Just water thoroughly and insert the cutting up to the node.
Use vermiculite alone or mixed with soil or peat for seed germination. This will allow seeds to germinate more rapidly. If vermiculite is used without soil, feed the seedlings a weak fertilizer solution of 1 tablespoon (15 mL.) of soluble fertilizer per 1 gallon (4 L.) of water once the first leaves appear. Damping off is thwarted since vermiculite is sterile and the seedlings are easily removed without damage to the roots.
Vermiculite mixed half and half with soil, peat, or compost eliminates packed down soil in flower pots and houseplant containers while allowing excellent aeration, reducing watering frequency and allowing root spread.
To transplant using vermiculite, dig a hole 6 inches (15 cm.) larger than the plants roots. Fill in with a mix of vermiculite and the removed topsoil. Again, this allows for root spread, provides moisture control, and protects the roots from drying out due to sun or wind. 3 inches (8 cm.) of vermiculite can also be used as mulch around shrubs and other garden plants like roses, dahlias, and tomatoes.
Place bulbs or root crops in a container and pour the vermiculite around them.
Even newly seeded lawns can benefit from an application of vermiculite. Mix 3 cubic feet (91 cm.) of vermiculite per 100 square feet (30 m².), seed, then cover the entire area with ¼ inch (6 mm.) of vermiculite. Water in with a fine spray. The vermiculite will hasten germination and increase the number of seeds that germinate while maintaining moisture and protecting from drying and heat.
Lastly, vermiculite can be used when arranging flowers. Fill the container with vermiculite, thoroughly saturate with water, pour off the excess, and arrange the flowers. This eliminates the need to change the water, eliminates spills, and keeps blooms fresh for days. Just be sure to use horticultural vermiculite and not that sold for house insulation– it is treated to repel water!
Vermiculite is actually a versatile garden and landscaping staple to have on hand. While its most popular use is either to start seeds or add to our potting mix, the benefits of having it on hand for other lawn and garden uses may surprise you.
Vermiculite is a great way to start seeds with or without mixing with potting soil. Vermiculite is particularly good for a faster germination when starting seeds. Whether used alone or mixed with potting soil, vermiculite aids in anchoring tender root systems as well as helping your young plants better absorb the following critical nutrients:
If you find yourself wanting to experiment with other ways to use your Vermiculite.
1. Create a base layer of vermiculite to help with water drainage.
2. Add a layer of cactus potting soil.
3. Carefully place succulents and secure with soil.
4. Finish with stones and moss, if desired.
GROWING MUSHROOMS AT HOME
Vermiculite is a water-absorbing material used to retain moisture in mushroom substrates used for growing edible mushrooms.
Vermiculite is a porous, inert substance that we will use to maintain moisture content inside the cases and provide space for the mycelium to grow.
PF Tek uses Vermiculite and Brown Rice flour (or sawdust and Brown rice flour) - this is the easiest method to learn how to grow mushrooms and many types work this way.
REPTILE BREEDING amp; TERRARIUMS
Choosing the right incubation media could be the difference between successful and failed hatches of captive bred reptiles. Vermiculite and perlite are two of the most commonly used incubation substrates across virtually all reptile breeders.
Helps to keep the eggs firmly in place to resist being repositioned or rotated when the incubation container is moved.
Vermiculite is a better choice for most tropical reptile species that need higher humidity levels to prevent the egg from drying too fast. Be cautious of too much moisture when using any incubation media as it can cause more harm than good.

When I first started out opening art commissions back in 2018, I was excited setting up my commission sheet. The idea of getting clients and having to draw their characters and bring them to life seems so fun! Imagine making a living by doing the thing you love, very realistic eh? Lucky enough for the skeptics around me, the excitement immediately dropped when I put out my commission sheet info out to the internet no one batted an eye. It was like shouting to an empty void. I posted on various websites including this, but every attempt comes wi.....Read more

Drawing is a step in my life. 3 years ago I spent my life working in a hospital, but it felt so hard and made me a little depressed because I could not feel happy. So I decided to resign from the hospital and started drawing. At first I drew on paper with watercolors, it lasted for a year, until finally I met a friend who is good at digital drawing. I was interested and started trying to draw digitally. Yeah, that was very fun. Maybe this can be a good therapy for me. Now I am truly in love with digital drawing. Make beautifu.....Read more

Being an artist is a free expression of the imagination. In detail, being a 3D artist forces you to analyze the world differently. To be honest, I had no idea when I started to have an interest in 3D art, for sure I know I was pretty young, we talk about Windows 98 and its games. I had always been fascinated by these virtual worlds, that year by year they were always more close to the real one; this technology will improve every day and it will always be like that. The true challenge for us is to keep that pace and be constantly updated. The .....Read more

Believe in yourself and in your dreams I knew that I liked to draw since I was very little, sometimes by following what others say about not following art or not following your dreams and changing it for something more stable, it leads us to leave what we really love, who we really are, and we get lost. But, sometimes the light appears to guide us back to our origins, and that is what happened to me, I always used art to create my own world, and I made the decision to do what I love and make me happy and be able to show that world.....Read more

At that time I was drawing using Microsoft Paint, so I started uploading stuff and I got a nice reaction. I met other artists through t.....Read more

"Art saved my life." Being an artist feels great. You work doing what you love, and that is priceless. My first encounter with art was many years ago when I drew the characters from my favorite anime and comics. The first challenge was losing my job. The company I worked for scammed me, they used my designs and after several months without good pay, the company filed for bankruptcy and I lost what little I had. The second challenge was losing the fear of drawing for other people. But I realized that fear did not pay the bills o.....Read more

Growing Stronger. I've been drawing since I was really little, like 6-7 y/o and it always was the way for me to connect with and understand the world I live in, and at the same time, the world that lives inside me. Through the years many things happened, people come and go, but drawing was always with me, it's the thing that stayed and just grows in me eternally. It was difficult at the beginning to connect with others, to find people who fully support this one thing I want to do for the rest of my life, and fortunately I did, on the in.....Read more
