I would put a very very small layer of verm on the bottom just so that the bottom is covere.
The crumble the mycelium on top of that.
Then use coco coir/verm/peat moss/and crushed oyster shells. For that top layer.

Yeah -- like booby said. I can't tell, Gonzo, from what you said, what you're trying to do. You should have the casing layer over the crumbled substrate. If you want to add a small vermiculite layer (partially damp) on the bottom it's up to you.

It's the husk from the shells of the coco plant. It's used as an expensive mulch or pet bedding (bed-a-beast.)
