If you have rye berries and a pc, then you don't need verm as a substrate. Except verm IS used in every casing mixture I've ever heard of, but it isn't absolutley necessary to case.

If i were you I would innoculate jars of rye grain and then allow to colonize then spawn to poo straw.. case with coco coir and a little oyster shell.. that should work.. but my friend has never tried using just coco coir as a casing ..

vermiculite - mica ....... notice anything? one is made from the other - vermiculite is expanded mica. the thing is, though, verm is so good because it absorbs water. does your mica? if so.....

go ahead, you're  :thumbup:
