Question about Vermiculite/Perlite
    #2355520 - 02/19/04 05:48 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Is there any difference between using Vermiculite and Perlite for the substrate? does it matter? I know I can get pearlite, but I cant seem to find Vermiculite.

They are not interchangeable for a BRF substrate...perlite wicks moisture,. vermiculite stores moisture within itself...vermiculite is out there in stores, online, and I believe our sponsors carry it...

Vermiculite is like a sponge, perlite is like pourous gravel.

I didn't find Vermiculite until I was in Maryland for a funeral and bumped into it at a Safeway. It's possible to get 40lb bags though for around $11 at some independent hardware stores/nurseries.
