Thank you for the info. The only kind of vermiculite around here is of the finer type. Ive noticed alot people use coarser types, will it make any huge difference as far as growing? Also, i dont have a pressure canner at the moment, am currently looking for one though. I just use a pot and a cloth at the bottom. I dont have any super tight fitting lids though so some steam is escaping, just wondering if this is ok or should I up the amount of time they are in there?

Well, I use horticultural grade vermiculite.  It's usually the finer stuff, looks like small pebbles almost.  The brand is Country Cottage, if that matters to ya.  The setup you're using to sterilize might work, but it's not a pressure cooker.  Just go buy one!  It'll pay for itself - remember that.

Peace.

Isn't finer vermiculite better in substrate than coarse because it can hold more water?

It seems a lot of people prefer the finer vermiculite, I prefer the more coarser brands. Mainly because I've noticed significant differences in colonization times between the two. The coarser vermiculite (I'm assuming) is a bit more airy and allowed the mycelium to move well through the substrate. The finer type usually takes a bit longer to completely colonize. But these are only my results, YMMV.
