What to use instead of vermiculite?
    #1203861 - 01/09/03 11:48 AM (14 years, 16 days ago)

I am doing the PF Tech and was having troubles finding vermiculite. Can I use pertilite? Or what?

Check local greenhouses, all the -marts, hardware stores, order online as a last resort. Good luck.

Perlite won't work, unless you are in fact trying to cultivate a large jar full of melted mush.

Try calling a few of the small garden supply stores or nursery's in your area, it's really pretty easy to find it, but big places like Lowes and WalMart never seem to have it in.

If you can't find a store that sells it nearby, or are just plain lethargic (i.e. me) then here's an online vendor: http://www.mycosupply.com

Next time use the phone and the yellow pages.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
