About the Horticultural Grade Plantation Vermiculite 3-6MM

High-Quality Natural Soil Mix: Vermiculite is a natural mineral material known for its cleanliness, odorlessness, non-toxicity, sterility, and pH-neutral properties. You can confidently add it to soil. This premium natural material is highly durable, compared to ordinary perlite, it is less prone to mold and rot.

Promotes Succulent Root Growth: Vermiculite has exceptional water retention capabilities, absorbing up to three times its volume in water. When the soil of succulent pots dries out, it releases stored moisture, maintaining soil moisture and promoting root growth.

Soil Conditioner: Vermiculite can also be used to improve soil structure, increase soil porosity, and prevent soil clumping. Rich in micronutrients, organic vermiculite contains potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and trace elements like manganese, copper, and zinc, providing nutrition to plants while also regulating acidic soil to neutral levels, meeting the needs of succulents for neutral soil.

Suitable for Various Horticultural Purposes: Vermiculite can be added to soil not only to retain water and improve soil quality but also for succulent propagation and hydroponics. As a highly water-retentive material, vermiculite is also suitable for seeding.

How to Use Vermiculite

Blend with Succulent Potting Soil: Mix approximately 5% vermiculite into succulent potting soil to enhance water retention.

Direct Seeding or Propagation with Vermiculite: Seeds or cuttings, including succulents, can be directly sown or propagated in vermiculite instead of soil to aid germination. Place seeds or cuttings in a container filled with vermiculite, water, and wait for germination. Vermiculite is also commonly used for leaf propagation and rootless stem cutting propagation, with succulents rooting faster in this moisture-retentive medium.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
