sterilize it with 99% alcohol or lysol(grow chamber)

and no you can't use vermiculite/perlite mix for substrate becuase you need nutrients for the spores to germinate and grow mycelium and there are no nutrients in vermiculite or perlite that is why the PF Tek calls for Brown rice flour(BRF) becuase they get all the nutrinets and like preschooler said maybe you should read the FAQ's not to be rude but it seem you have alot to learn before you start growing

here's the link

'cause it's not called steralizing, it's called cleaning to reduce risk of contams

and NO PERLITE

it can be done . in fact you can use cat litter if you want .
but, you won't get good results .
read the faq, pick a tek, and follow it to a T .
then when you get results, and you have some idea about the lifecycle of mushrooms, you have something to compare your experiments to .
