Vermiculite offers numerous benefits as a substrate for terrariums, benefiting both plants and the resident animals. 

Here's why:
- Enhanced Soil Fertility: Vermiculite acts as a nutrient reservoir, gradually releasing essential elements to plants, thereby improving soil fertility. It has the capacity to absorb fertilizers, prolonging their efficacy.
- Moisture Retention: It has excellent moisture retention properties, helping to maintain optimal hydration levels in the soil. This prevents waterlogging and dehydration, which can be detrimental to many plants and animals.
- Improved Air Capacity: Vermiculite increases the air capacity of the soil, facilitating better aeration for plant roots and promoting healthy growth.
- Cleaning Precautions: While vermiculite is generally clean, it may contain dust or debris.

Prior to use, it's advisable to rinse it in a colander under running water until the water becomes clear. Allow it to drain thoroughly and dry before incorporating it into your terrarium setup.
