Lamproite is a combination of trace minerals and micronutrients in their natural form. It is beneficial to all growing plants and may be applied directly to seed or roots at planting time or used as a top dressing any time of year. Magnesium fertilizer is eco-friendly and does not burn. Magnesium-mica comes from a surface deposit of a rare rock that only occurs in a few places in the world. This deposit is located in Buffalo in southeastern Kansas.
Magnesium-mica, or vermiculite as it is sometimes called, is an all natural product with nothing added or removed, it contains essential minerals for healthy plant growth. Mag-mica is highly absorbent and can save up to 18% on water usage.

There is continued research that points to the benefits and uses of magnesium-mica. View the Kansas State Horticultural study, conducted by their department to evaluate physical properties of peat-based root media amended with mag-mica. The study evaluated its role in growth, nutrient and water management.View the Research »
