I have found it at Lowes b4. The best place to get it IMO is mycosupply.com

Perlite is used to keep the fruiting chamber humid.

Geolite works so will lava rocks w/airpumps.

sometimes k-mart and walmart has it. my local Home Depot does not, but Lowes does. Also Fred Meyer has some. Just get some perlite man, its only like 2.50 for a bag.

i dont think any department stores carry verm....youll have to go to a hardware store, or nursery, or hydroponics store. It should be real cheap, a few bucks for a few grows, or about 15 for a virtual lifetime supply..

no pearlite cannont be used as a substitute for vermiculite.

vermiculite holds water (good to keep mycilium hydrated)
pearlite "wicks" water into the air (good at keep the air humid)
