No one, Not a single store has vermiculite in my town... All they have is this shit called "Soil conditioner" and it say's on the top of the bag "better then vermiculite" SOB!!!!!!!!!! I just got off the phone with the farmers market and then say this shit dose the same thing as vermiculite but it just does it better... They say it replaced vermiculite when it came out. Does any1 kno if this stuff will work?

haven't heard of it. Many things in nurseries are labeled "soil conditioners." Did you try Home Depot, Lowes? that's where I got mine.
There are some online sources as well, do a search. It's difficult to be as successful as you want in this hobby without verm. It is an essential ingredient.

I'm not going to say that it is as good, because it isn't, but I have successfully grown mushroomsusing perlite as a replacement for vermiculite.

I'll probably get flamed for mentioning it, but it did work.

That was my first grow and I got around 10 dry grams off of five cakes. That's not too good but it did grow shrooms.

I would theorise that cakes consisting entirely of BRF, or containing everyday vermiculite substitues such as cardboard or cotton, would yeild more mushrooms than cakes made with perlite... IMO

It was my first grow and I was using ShroomWizards grow guide. I couldn't find verm then and his guide said that perlite would work. Since then I found some verm and I can definately tell the difference.

The point was that it grew mushrooms. If someone had suggested some other substitute I might have tried that.

This was all before I found the shroomery.

I didn't mean to shit you man, I was just suggesting that other household shit might work better than perlite, but not having tried it, I'm just guessin

Did you check the sponsors? Myco Supply handles it, two different grades, along with pretty much anything else you'd ever need.
