Use of Perlite instead of vermiculite?????
    #1467321 - 04/17/03 03:07 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I am following the MMGG tek. I have been to 4 different garden centers and cannot find vermiculite. I did manage to find perlite which I plan to use for humidification later. Can perlite be substituted into the substrate material in place of vermiculite? If not, what can be used in place of the vermiculite, or is the vermiculite absolutely essential?

i think it's been tried, with varying levels of success. i've never tried it, but i think it would work poorly. you can order vermiculite online.

or just use whole grains instead of PF jars.
