I've heard of people doing this. Also, I think vermiculite holds much more water than perlite does, perlite just wicks moisture off, thus creating a higher RH. But by all means, experiment and see if it works well for you! :laugh:

Verm does infact have a higher water absorbtion index.

Perlite absorbs 10-90% of its weight while verm absorbs up tp 400% of its weight.

There is no reason perlite would not work in substrate, but verm works better.

I once had some substrate that was too wet after spawning, I added dry sterile perlite in order to reduce the overall moisture content of the substrate. It fruited fine.
