Vermiculite in China?

Vermiculite in China?

Post  Escaped Lunatic on 7/11/2015, 5:37 am

For something so easy, it's impossible to find.

Everything I can find online says vermiculite should weigh under 160 grams per liter, and that weight is for very very fine.

Coarse should weigh a lot less.

The lowest density I could find had a claimed density of 90 grams per liter.  I just opened the box.  It weighs well over 200 grams and has . . . something else mixed with vermiculite.  I don't know what's really in it.  Mad

In any event, if anyone has any ideas of a reliable brand of vermiculite or can point me to a source, I'd deeply appreciate it.

Otherwise, I guess I'm going to have to consider perlite, but that seems to be less able to hold water.

Boffer has sent a message to another member, PVPind, as he has a vermiculite business. Much of US vermiculite comes from China, so hopefully you will have an answer shortly.
