It will work fine given proper use.

In many of the teks, you'll find specific items mentioned. Brown rice flour, perrenial rye grass seed, wild bird food, etc.. many were chosen because they are the cheaper or easier to find than other, similar, items that will work about the same.

In fact, the whole BRF cake thing started because cultivators didn't want to buy a pressure cooker.

Maybe someday James Burke will do a 'Connections' episode about it. ;)

If you find it cheaper than vermiculite, let us know.
