Yeah, I haven't heard of many people keeping moist vermiculite for humidity. It could work, but I'd suspect it would foster mold more than perlite would. Could be wrong.
If you really wanted to keep it going, I might consider continually spiking the vermiculite with peroxide. This *should* keep mold proliferation down. Regardless, really keep an eye on it!

Use perlite.. I've tried vermiculate too, and imo .. it sucks.
