Functions vermiculite granules

Vermiculite is a mineral rock that expands like a harmonica when heated. This results in a very light grain with a high moisture holding capacity. This moisture then slowly releases the horticultural vermiculite again.  

The moisture-holding capacity ensures that the irrigation water is retained and as a result nutrients are rinsed out much less quickly. The soil structure also remains airy and oxygen-rich, so that plants can easily create roots. Furthermore, horticultural vermiculite is often used as a scattering agent to germinate seeds, or as a propagation medium for bulbs.

You must have heard of perlite, but what is the difference between vermiculite and perlite? Our specialists have listed the differences for you.
