Hi, I was wondering if I could use perlite with manure in a substate instead of vermiculture or straw. Thanks

stick with the proven teks.
If this is your first grow, i would not suggest manure/straw. start with pf tek.

He didn't say it was his first grow, it's just his first post. Anyway, perlite is not a good substitute for vermiculite. If you're using horse poo you can use it straight, if you're using cow poo you can mix it with straw or vermiculite. Good Luck.

The reason is, perlite holds water, while vermiculite wicks water (pushes it).  Perlite will try to take all of the water from the surrounding substrate, while vermiculite will evenly distribute it.
