Description
Vermiculite is a natural mineral that is commonly used as a soil conditioner. Vermiculite improves the aeration of soil mixes but is also very absorbant so it retains water/nutrient very well. Vermiculite can also be used as a growing medium in hydroponics as it is nutritionally inert meaning it contains no nutrient.
