Vermiculite
    #2206078 - 12/28/03 07:19 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Found the brown rice flower, I got the vermiculite at lowes, but its real real fine like sand. Is that going to be a problem?

fine verm doesn't leave the air spaces needed for quick colonisation.
it will work though,just be sure that when you fill your jars dont pack them at all,just drop the mix in spoon by spoon,this should leave gaps in the mix that will provide the air pockets that are needed.
DONT PACK IT IN THERE.

a good source for vermiculite is uline.com the only thing is that you have to order a min of 2 boxes. perfect for 2 people but too much for 1. go in with someone on it.

i get the regular verm from home depot. works great and it's only like 1.39/bag.

one step i do that isn't in the pf tek's, i use fine grade brown rice instead of flower. seems to work better for me.

I just made my 1st substrate with Verm/BRF from
MycoSupply and I wondered about the size of the
verm as well. It's quite fine so I just dropped the
mix in and put on the top layer.
I'm wondering if it wil be ok for a Dunk & Roll tho.
