newbie sorry...
    #2314918 - 02/08/04 05:55 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey I was collecting all the equipment to grown some shrooms and I was wondering could I substitute perlite for vermiculite?

Would finch seed (thisle) work like brown rice powder?

thanks for your time! :heart:

Try not to reveal that. This website is for 18+

Where do you plan on growing these mushrooms?

I have an incubator made. All I need are the spores and a pressure cooker.

My point was... if your growing at your "parents" home without there concent that would not be a cool thing to do. Assuming that your next reply will be "of course they are letting me grow illegal mushrooms" ill help you out the best i can. Cause personally i dont give a fuck.

Perlite and vermiculite cost the same amount of money... and in most cases no you can't use perlite instead of vermiculite. So dont.

About the finch seed... i dont know.

Why do you want to use these products instead of the recommended ones?

BRF and vermiculite cost like 5$ for both. Go out and buy the right shit :wink:

No, you can't. Perlite does not have the retaining water properties that vermiculite does, and perlite is used for totally different purposes. Stick with the normal procedure, buy some vermiculite and brown rice flour.

If you're talking about a finch seed that contains mainly millet, and you were to use the WBS Tek (do a search), then yes you could use this as a substrate. You'll need a pressure cooker when working, so get one. If you dont have one, dont even bother with grains just stick to the PF tek (verm/BRF). Be sterile and use viable spores. Remember to keep your recipe ratio good too.

Jon, I banned you from the irc because you keep saying you are 16. I hope someone bans you from this forum. If we know your age, you HAVE to go.

PM Ythan for advice if you wish jon. He started this site when he was 16. I'm sure he doesn't like this rule. Sadly it is there for a reason.

If you can't cover up your age (AND YOU CAN'T... You tell everyone you are 16), I imagine you will have problems keeping your grow op a secret from your parents :rolleyes:.

This is the 4th time I have heard of you saying you are underage (on IRC and now, on this forum). Either you are stupid, or you are trying to get this site in trouble.

One way or the other, you should not be here. That is too bad... aside from not being very smart, you seem like a good guy.

Come back in a year and a half. Maybe two.

Since I can't give you more growing advice (sorry), lemme just say, perlite might work. Why not check with your PARENTS and see if they'll give you the car keys to go buy some. Make sure to tell them it is for MUSHROOM cultivation. Stealth shrooms always contaminate.

*PLEASE BAN BRAINLESSJON He is underage. PM me for details.

TheDrugStore and LateForTheFuture... (close your virgin eyes brainlessjon)

I disagree with you, I have seen great (in relative pf terms) results from perlite substitution.
