Vermiculite Growing Medium
When we run out, we will not be re-stocking this as it is widely available and we absolutely adore Coconut Coir. Vermiculite is a soilless growing medium that holds water amazingly well. It is wonderful medium for growing Grass and Greens, as well as Micro-Greens. We sell Vermiculite by volume. One Unit = 8 Pints, which is enough for two 10x20 inch Tray crops. Vermiculite is amazingly light stuff.
Since we wanted to grow some cat grass mix just in pots, decided to try this and absolutely loved it. The grass grew up great, no mess like with dirt if the pot gets tipped over, nor any mess of water as it had it all absorbed.
The only mistake made, was by hubby who just assumed we needed to water the grass and didn't finger check that it was still plenty moist.. ending up causing the roots to mold and rot.
Seeing you aren't/won't be stocking this anymore, I am curious now to try the coconut coir that you guys are raving on now. Since it looks like we will be trying to keep fresh kitty grass growing all the time as it has saved my plants from their nibbles. (I put their grasses well away from my plants to designate "theirs" from "mine".)
