Vermiculite Substitute
    #2772235 - 06/07/04 05:54 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I've looked around the site, and thus far have only seen one post on possible vermiculite substitutes. I live in rural Missouri, and am thus having one hell of a time finding vermiculite. If anyone has any good ideas on what one could use in its place, I would be much appreciative.

Verm is easy to find. Walmart carries it.
you can also order it through mycosupply, and a few other online vendors. check the sponsors.
I wouldn't try subbing it with anything else. People have tried perlite in the past, but it doesn't work near as well, and therefore isn't recommended.

I checked 2 of the super wal-mart's in the louisville area and neither had verm. But even in the most rural of area, there should be places like Tractor Supply Company, lawn and garden shops, and nurseries, all of which should carry verm.

It also does not hurt if you can't find it to ask. It's not like shrooms are the only thing that is grown on verm, so they're not gonna thing anything about it if you ask.
