Why not use the sulfur alone?

Karen Rexrode

The dahlia society's website says that too much sulfur can burn the growth tips or eyes, so the vermiculite acts as a filler. I also think that the vermiculite draws excess moisture to itself, away from the bulb. My old mix of 3 years was too damp to use, even though it had been stored in a dry shed. We all know that vermiculite absorbs moisture, so I'm guessing it's the best working additive.

Great info - thanks!
