well it is best to buy the big verm cuz what it dose is give mycelium space to breath good and if you have a powder from what you are saying it will make it harder for it to breath and it will grow alot slower then you want

Well, people say there's little difference between using coarse or fine vericulite, but I'm not sure they meant as fine as powder :tongue:
Only one way to find out.. maybe do a test batch of a couple of jars to see how it works out.

it will work, most likely anyway. ive used fine grade verm b4 and it worked. if you wanted to, i suppose after you mix all you verm+brf+water, you could ball it up in to little pellets & something al drop it in the jar.

I went and looked at the left over verm in the factory bag. Each piece is about 7 to 10 times bigger than say a grain of salt. So mabyee that doesent constitute powdery. I looked at my jars "8 innoc Sat @ 8am" and their is air pockets in their as to say the mix is very loose and airy. Mabyee its not as bad as I thought?

the fine is good to use for that top vermiculite barrier,
but medium to coarse is better for the actual substrare.
