VERMICULITE

Soil improvement

Vermiculite is a hydro-biotic mineral formed from mica flakes. By vaporizing the water contained in its sheets, the heat allows it to burst into multiple lamellae separated by air.

The sheets thus formed constitute an accordion shape and have, among other things, a great capacity for absorbing mineral elements.

Our vermiculite is of excellent quality and contains no trace of asbestos.

PLANTATIONS COMPATIBLES

FLORAL SPECIES

All flowers.

In surfacing:

  • optimal lighting, insulation and humidity

  • avoids asphyxiation and crushing

 

Mixed (20 to 50%)

  • water and nutrients more available to plants

  • inert, ideal space for young shoots

VEGETABLE SPECIES

All vegetable, fruit and aromatic plants, from plant to harvest as a soil improvement mixed with the substrate or as a surfacing.

In surfacing:

  • optimal lighting, insulation and humidity

  • avoids asphyxiation and crushing

 

Mixed (20 to 50%)

  • water and nutrients more available to plants

  • inert, ideal space for young shoots

COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES VERSUS OTHER GROWING SUBSTRATES

RETURNS AND SAVINGS

Guarantees a constant and optimal hygrometric level for the development of the plant. Allows water savings, reduces the frequency of watering and allows particularly easy rehydration.

Lightens the substrate

Aerates the substrate

Humidity control

Avoids the suffocation of plants and promotes oxygen uptake.

Insulating power, allows both to maintain a constant and optimal temperature, to retain humidity uniformly and to promote the circulation of oxygen without capturing it (inert substrate).

Completely sterile (no risk of infection by fungus, bacteria or insects) due to the substrate.

EASE OF USE

Wide areas of application, very high flexibility.

Lighter than other substrates, easier handling

Ready to use instantly.

Mechanical stability, avoids settling due to watering and time.

Made to order: great flexibility of orders.
