good advice ya'll.

perlite's pourous surface is what gives it it's desirable properties for fruiting chamber use. verm just soaks up the water.

perlite's also more readily avaliable in stores, IME.

would crushed quartzite rock work, and does the perlite or crushed rock need to be sterilized?

The perlite works because it is superheated volcanic glass. It is heated to an insane termp (can't remember exactly what) untill it 'pops' almost like pop-corn leaving it hollow and porous. There is generally no need to steralize it but it is wise to add a small amount of H202 to the water when you wet it down. About a 20:1 ratio works fine.
