If you have never used vermiculite before and you live in an area with poor soil, then you are missing out. Vermiculite is a great 3-in-1 conditioner. Vermiculite is able to hold water and prevent draining, which is great if you live in an arid climate. It will also hold soil nutrients, and lastly, vermiculite has the property of exfoliation, where it expands and aerates the soil.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to find vermiculite in bulk. The Hoffman Vermiculite contains 222 cubic inches of finely grained vermiculite. It is more useful for germinating seeds and potting than conditioning your entire garden.

This is fine grade...consistancy of sand.

If you want bigger chunks get medium grade or coarse grade.

OK product though.

Many think Vermiculite and Perlite are similar. They are not. For some reason Vermiculite is difficult to find locally and on the internet. Vermiculite retains moisture Perlite retains oxygen. Both are valuable and I use them in conjunction with great results. Try equal parts of both with worm castings for a great potting medium. Add some worm castings and the result is better than a miracle.

This is quality vermiculite and has many good uses, but the description does not describe the grade. Unlike most other brands, the one I was shipped was a very fine, almost dust-like grain. Was not what I was looking for..

I used this vermiculite in my gourmet mushroom growing and it worked very well. When mixed with the flour it produced cakes that were perfect in consistency and held proper amounts of moisture to allow the myco to do it's thing! Highly recommend in the use of growing your own gourmet mushrooms.

I bought this for some indoor plants and it works well. It is very fine particles, however. If you are looking for coarse-grade vermiculite this is not for you, but if you are just making a soil-less mix with, say, perlite, then it will suit you just fine.

Other reviews say large-grain verm. This stuff feels like powder or really fine sand, which was the opposite of what I needed. Waste of money since I can't return it after opening the bag.

Unfortunately, because of some unfounded fears about the makeup of vermiculite, it is getting harder to find...which is a shame, since it is a useful additive to potting mixes. Unless you're planning to eat, smoke or inhale it (and you can always wear a dust mask when mixing soils!), I wouldn't worry about using it. It works great at keeping a potted soil mix friable and aerated...which is great for a plant's root system.
