Vermiculite as Perlite substitute?
    #1454781 - 04/13/03 02:46 PM (21 years, 15 days ago)

Hi all,

I know I am a greedy bastard when it comes to taking information from everyone, but I really appreciate it and I do attempt to find out the answers before posting here. Alas, I have a question...
If I ever get round to trying theTek, can I use Vermiculite as a Perlite substitute? In the past I have had great difficulty getting and maintining high temperatures, in fact I think because of this In have never had a successful grow :frown:

Please post some humidification tips, thank you!

Much appreciated,

verm holds water in. perlite evaporates it out. they're not interchangeable as humidification tek.

presumably you mean 'high humidities'? there's perlite, there's a bubbler / airstone in a glass of water, there's humidifiers (coolmists), hand spraying .....

check out the faq - lots more in there. good luck, UK :cool:
