In the FAQ for types of casing materials, it states that vermiculite can be used as 100% of the casing, but that coco and peat show their water content more visibly due to their change in shade of color. Is this the only advantage to the alternative casing types? Or do they benefit the mushrooms somehow?

lol, yes water holding is going to be the ONLY advantage. :smile:.  I think coco hold more than verm. but gets infected more easily (IME).
