I'll probably put some thirty to forty grains in each pot and see what happens. And I am not really heavy on ammonium nitrogen.

It'll probably work well to improve water retention in your commercial mixes.
I would guess your home-made mix with the clay doesn't have a problem with water retention and clays naturally have a higher CEC for holding on to nutrient cations which minimizes leaching..



These N. American zeolite mining companies has some good information on uses and benefits as a soil amendment.
