What is that “fairy dust” I see on plants in the retail store?

This is biological pest control in action!

At Gulley’s we don’t like to use chemicals on our plants, so we utilize beneficials. Beneficials are welcome bugs that eat the unwelcome bugs. The dust you see is in fact vermiculite we sprinkle so we can tell what plants have been treated.

Beneficials are the direction we hope all greenhouses adopt in the future to keep our earth healthy!
