A naturally occurring mineral, vermiculite is highly absorbent, lightweight and an essential part of many professional soilless growing mixes. It has a high CEC (cation exchange capacity) for better fertilizer retention and release when used in potting mix. When used alone, it is perfect for rooting cuttings.
Our small orchid bark is perfectly suited to the culture of terrestrial orchid species, such as Paphiopedilum and Cymbidium, which naturally populate woodland habitats. It provides structural root support and aeration and is also ideal for terrestrial bromeliads and ferns.
This is an excellent soil conditioner, especially for heavy soils. Use it to improve soil texture, density, aeration, and drainage. Charcoal can absorb excess moisture as well as remove odors. It is very effective in sweetening soils in terrariums and pots that lack appropriate drainage.

It also contains an added organic wetting agent for quick, easy wetting. Mix liberally with garden soil to improve water retention and aeration.
