it sounds like you're using the 60/40 tek. the casing materials include coir, vermiculite, and calcium carbonate. re-read the tek

60/40 casing tek

yea you can drop a thin layer (like 1/4 inch, or none even) of damp verm on the bottom, then add your crumbled substrate, then another layer of damp verm on top of that. the top layer should be no more than 1/4 the depth of the substrate. if i were you i'd sterilize the damp verm in the microwave for 10 minutes and let cool before use (two 5 minute sessions with a stir or a shake in between).

The casing layer has to be as bland as possible (to avoid contams), but with the ability to hold water and make it readily available for the mycelium. Straight verm is OK.
