Hi there,

Does anyone know a source for vermiculite in hawaii?
I noticed there will be sfg workshop in hawaii coming up,
so maybe there is a source for vermiculite in hawaii somewhere,
I would hate to have to use perlite instead.

Thanks
Troy

Hi Troy,

If you are on Oahu, try Pacific Agricultural Sales & Service, 91-262 Ola'i St. Kapolei, Hi 96707 phone 808-682-5113.

I got a 6 cubic ft bag for about 43.27. This was for the medium grade. The coarse was out and wouldn't be in for a while. Far as I know they still had a lot of medium left.

Aloha,
Jan

Yes, I'm on oahu, thanks alot for the contact, a big help, lowes had it, but sell it in 8 quart bags, which gets kind of exy.

Vermiculite in Hawaii Empty Medium grade vermiculite

Post  OahuSFG on 3/19/2010, 4:30 pm

The medium grade works fine for me. I can't see any difference in plant growth between the coarse grade.

Pacific Ag will stock the coarse grade, but what they'll do, according to the sale clerk, is wait until they have enough of a substantial order to bring it in. Guess we need to spread the word on SFG!

At first I got the 8 quart bags from Lowes as well. It was super fine. There is another garden shop called Wally's on Beretania st. that told me they could order it. However I suspect it is coming from Pacific Ag as well, as the clerk said the same thing about its availability.

Vermiculite in Hawaii Empty Alternate Vermiculite Source

Post  lavamom on 3/24/2010, 2:05 am

Pacific Ag is out of vermiculite right now, but taking names on their waiting list; should be another 3-4 weeks, and they said it will go fast.

I wanted my vermiculite NOW - so I started calling around, and found someone in Waimanalo who has it. It's Island Grower Supplies, 41-1143 Waikupanaha St, 259-8420, owned by a real friendly man named Fred. He gets it from Therm-O-Rock in Chandler, Arizona. He is generally a wholesale business, but he will accommodate people's needs, and was interested in SFG. He has 3.5 cubic foot bags for $22. The bag is marked coarse, but the particles were smaller than I expected.

Hope this helps someone!

Also Crop Production Services sells it. They are starting to bring in more coarse since more people are requesting it. They're in the Pearl City Industrial Park near Sam's Club. 454-0041. Approx $25 for a 3.5 CF bag. M-F and they close at 4 pm. No I don't work there..... I just use them a lot.... Smile

Vermiculite in Hawaii Empty Re: Vermiculite in Hawaii

I went to the Koolau farms in Kailua this past weekend.

They had vermiculite (3 cubic ft 39.00) and coconut coir (2 cubic ft bricks 9.00 on sale regular price 12.00).

This may be closer for some SFGers on the Windward side of the island or for those who can't make it during the weekdays to Pacific Agriculture. Koolau Farms is open on Sat and Sun!

Vermiculite in Hawaii Empty Frre Compost!

Post  OahuSFG on 10/3/2011, 6:06 pm

I recently went to the Xeriscape event held in Halawa. They were giving out free compost. It is good compost! It looks like coffee grounds. It was promoted as mulch but I used it as compost in my SFG. My plants love it! If you go there with your own shovel and containers, you can take as much as you want FREE, every Saturday!

Thought I'd post this here in case you were also looking for compost too.

Vermiculite in Hawaii Empty Vermiculite Database

Post  WardinWake on 10/3/2011, 10:36 pm

Howdy Folks:

Check out the SFG Forum Vermiculite Database. If your source is not listed there please add it. At first your source will be at the bottom of the list (there are almost 900 listings) until the database is resorted. I check several times each week and resort then.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

You really do have a vermiculite data base!!  Unfortunately Kapolei is on another island (Oahu)...  I thought you were kidding.
