Vermiculite courseness

Vermiculite comes in range of sizes. When making PF cakes, is it better to use large chunks of vermiculite (each piece about the size of a large pea), or to buzz it through a coffee grinder first?

If you're going to fruit directly from the cakes, and not case them, I'd use fine verm, though course will work too. If you intend to case the cakes, better stick with coarse verm.

All grades will work. I have a preference for course grade. The mycelium grows quickly in the little pockets made.

but do note that i only use fine grade because thats all that is available at my local garden center. but yeah any grade will work, but the post up there is true. if your fruiting cakes use a fine grade, and for casings use a course grade, for the fine grade will hold together better, and the more course grade will crumble easier.
