I’ve read that impure vermiculite contains asbestos (i.e. from the plant in Libby, MT). Does this product contain traces of asbestos? Tha k you

Asked by: DrewP
Drew: I'd be just as concerned as you if I thought that was true. I've been using it for year in my garden and I've never found anything in any of the bags I bought other than the mulch I love. Keeps the soil cooler in the summer warmer in the winter and it looks good. If you put on a thick layer you'll have a lot less weeds and that's a win win any way you look at tit. Hope that helps, Hank

Does anyone know if this is totally organic and chemical free?

I am want to use as an additive for water retention in tarantula terrariums' substrates, and do not want the fertilizers, chemicals etc. found in most premixed potting soils. Also does it promote mold? - Don't need that either.

2 cu. ft. Organic Vermiculite Soil Amendment is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 189.

I use vermiculite as a potting soil amendment, for starting seeds, and for propagating plants using stem cuttings. It's annoying to go to a large store and find only a teeny bag of this useful material, naturally with an unusually inflated price. Larger bags are also available on the Internet, but who needs a 20-year supply sitting in the potting shed? It's nice to know, and also very handy, that Home Depot carries this 2 cubic foot bag for a very reasonable price. It's plenty for the average gardener to use in a year or three, and the quality and price is great.

As an avid gardener and houseplants fanatic, this 2 cubic ft. bag is enough to last a year. I amend potting soil, regular soil (outdoor dirt), and coir with it. Great for adding water retaining properties to soil that plant roots can easily grow in.

I wanted the Scits because it’s comes from 100 miles from my home not from the south.i didn’t notice the mistake until I was home and started to applying the mulch. I used it all but was a little put back by lack of listening
