Hi all,

Ask them where they get their vermiculite from and if you can obtain some:

Pumice is closely related to perlite in it's characteristics.I don't think it would work as a vermiculite substitute. These formula come from the mushroom cultivator.I have used them in the past with success.
4 parts peat moss
1 part limestone flour
1/2 part limestone grit
2-2 1/4 parts water

2 parts peat moss
1 part chalk or marl
1-1 1/4 parts water

If all else fails someone here at the shroomery could mail a bag,the stuff doesn't weigh much.
