could i use perlite instead of vermiculite?
    #3603386 - 01/09/05 02:26 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have looked everywhere; Home Depot, Menard's, BigK, Target, and Walmart. but i can not find vermiculite. i was wondering instead of doing this step
"1. Brown rice powder, vermiculite and distilled water are mixed and loaded into a 1/2 pint jar, which is steam sterilized. The jar is then inoculated by the spore syringe."
If i use the perlite in its place would it matter? I am still new so i really appreciate the help. and if perlite will not work please tell me what i can use. ty

I found some at Lowe's for three bucks. It was a fairly large bag. You just have to ask around. Good luck to you.
