No of course it not a necessity, but u don't think its better for drainage and airation, especially for a beginner who had a possible moisture problem with their soil?..I thought it would be a good idea...what do I know anyway, I'm a newbie too and its all preferance

no, you are right. It does help to air out the soil give good drainage and hold water.
There is also expanded clay pellets, although not as good and heavier.
Some people even use Styrofoam packing peanuts.

so many options, pound for pound it is a better option, not so eco-friendly (styrofoam either for that matter) however as it needs to be mined

No it not a necesssity but more of a preferance..BUT, I thought it would be a good idea for more drainage and root airation considering that there has been a moisture issue in the past I thought..I think its better for beginnners who don't k ow when to water or what not..what do I know, I'm a new ie myself!  Grin

I use 30% vermiculite to 70% comercial potting soil for rooting cuttings.

good mix Lucas, I bought a huge bag of vermiculite at some point and mixed it with pretty much every soil mix I had.

I got a bag of river sand the last time, I have found that it absorbs insane amounts of water, the pots are heavy but watering is quite infrequent which is a good thing in this insane sun. The coconut peat wielded the lightest, most absorptive and fungus free soil so far, the miracle fruit seedlings seem to like it a great deal so I am considering using it in the future. It is eco, can be reused, balances the soil PH and keep bugs away. A really nice alternative to heavy soil mixes. I am considering using a 50-50 mix coconut peat and worm castings.
