No , they are two totally different things .
Perilite does not work well in substrates .
It will , but is not as good as verm .

There were never more accurate words spoken! Do yourself a favor, DON'T use perlite for a substrate, ground up or not. It is not worth your time, and vermiculite is no more expensive.

Perlite is volcanic glass, vermiculite is a product made from mica
