okay, my friend only has a very fine grain of vermiculite and i was wondering for him (bastard doesn't have the internet) if that works just as well. I thought it might work better because the smaller it is the more surface area there is plus i asked a teacher and he said that it probably wouldn't matter because it's just there to hold space. But has anyone you know used fine vermiculite and gotten good results?

i'm not sure if the larger grain is better for holding the cakes together or if he'll have to change the mixture of the cakes

some prefer the fine grade over the course. it takes longer for the mycellium to colonize, but it will have a stronger network. use it, it'll work
