The Q&A Archives: Natural Zeolites

Question: I saw some natural zeolites displayed on Philippine's plant nursery store for the plants.
What is the effect of natural zeolites in the soil and what is their advantage for the plants?

Answer: I am not familiar with using zeolite specifically for plants, but it is said to absorb moisture, odors, mold and mildew. Perhaps the intent would be to counter any possible negative effects from the potting soil. Healthy plants in good soil however would not usually have an odor or excess moisture, so I am not sure why there would be a need for it. I am sorry I can't be more helpful.
