Espoma Organic Vermiculite helps loosen heavy soils and prevents compaction. It also aerates the soil and promotes root growth.

For Potting Soil: To improve heavy soil, mix one-part soil to one part Vermiculite. To blend your own potting media, mix two parts, Peat Moss, with one part compost, and one part Vermiculite.

For Seed Starting:

  • Fill a shallow container with Pete Moss, or blend of 80% Peat and 20% Perlite or Vermiculite.
  • Peat pots or special seed starting trays with drainage holes make transplanting easier.
  • Wet the mix and allow it to drain.
  • Plant seeds according to package directions. Please container and warm, bright location (avoid direct sunlight).
  • Keep soil moist by misting with a spray bottle.
  • When the plant develops its first leaves, transplant it into a larger container or outdoors in a prepared bed. Note: Dig seedlings out of their mix and handle with care to avoid damaging the fragile stem in the root system.

For Root Cuttings:

  • Fill a flat or another clean container with Peat Moss, or a blend of 80% Peat and 20% Vermiculite, and wet the mix.
  • Make a hole with a pencil, gently insert the cutting and pat the soil to close the hole.
  • Keep soil moist and out of direct sunlight until roots are developed and the plant can be transplanted.
