What about peat moss instead of vermiculite? I have everything except the damn vermiculite.

Don't go looking for alternatives to vermiculite if you can get vermiculite, even if it would be by ordering it online. I've tried a few alternatives, but they just don't work. Perlite appears to soak up too much moisture, resulting in wet perlite but dry mycelium/substrate, peat moss is quite acidic so you'd have to add eggshells or so, and so on and so on...
Get yourself some verm!
