Industrial Vermiculite?

Industrial Vermiculite?

Post  TaylorNH on Sun 25 Apr 2010 - 14:08

I've been doing internet searches for vermiculite, and have found a bunch sold for packing hazardous waste stuff in. So if it spills, the vermiculite absorbs it. Is this the same stuff I'm putting in my garden?

Basically, yes. I understand that the shipping kind tends to be medium rather than coarse. It is also used for insulation.

Industrial Vermiculite

Post  donnainzone5 on Mon 26 Apr 2010 - 9:20

I don't know about other shipping companies, but U-Line features different grades of vermiculite for shipping different types of products. Its #4 grade is SUPER coarse, and I love it.
