I was at walmart today and looked in the garden center for perlite, was I in the right area? and I am doing cakes. I was told it was the easiest for a beginner.

Where I live, the Brown rice flour is thougher to find than any other needed supply.

That's why I decided to buy regular Brown Rice (every supermarket have this) and grind it myself with a small coffee grinder.

Works very good and you get the BRF you need. Also a lot cheaper...

In the local Franks Nursery and Crafts (something like that) the perlite is right next to the vermiculite. BRF is kind of non existent around here so my clone would grind brown rice in powder using a coffee grinder.

I was able to locate perlite at the garden department of my local Wal-Mart store.

At the same Wal-Mart and another one in a nearby town, my requests for vermiculite were answered with replies such as, "Who!?!" and "What?"

I walked into the garden center at Lowe's (a large building supply store not unlike Home Depot), asked the same question, and was quickly taken to the stuff. I found it strange that Wal-Mart would have perlite and not vermiculite because the "tek" I'm following seemed to suggest that vermiculite was a much more readily available ingredient.

I never really expected to find brown rice flour in my area. Health food stores and the like are in short supply. The only one I could find didn't carry it. I ended up throwing a couple of bags of brown rice into a food processor and making my own BRF.

This seems to work. This is my first try. I inoculated two days ago, and one of my jars that got an extra-healthy sized portion of spores (a small clump just didn't want to break up no matter how hard I shook the syringe, so I decided that it wouldn't hurt for one cake to get an insane amount of spores) is already showing what I believe to be a small amount of growth around the inoculation site.
