I can't find any verm, coir or 50/50 around here and I've heard that peat isn't all that great. Should I just go for the peat, or is there a better alternative for it? (can't order online w/o credit card)

peat is great stuff, make sure its the canadian sphagum moss.  take out the twigs and crap, adjust it with hydrated lime, add some crushed oyster shells, for the ratios check out  Ryche Hawk's 50/50 tek .  use that for your casing layer.  for the bottom layer you can mix perlite and peat @ ~ 50/50 or just use perlite. case away

He said he couldn't find any Verm.

Ryches tek calls for Verm.

Thanx. N E clue were I can find ph-papers in winter? None of the '-martstores carry it. All I could find was a 1 time use soil-test kit w/some gel-caps in it to test ph, nitrogen, phosphorous, and potash. Don't get me wrong it was a great find but I can only use it once. I need papers.

probably a pet store which sells aquariums and such.
its not absolutely necessary if you follow the ratios, just break them down to suit your needs. if you cant find it dont stress on it. carry on

Can you find "Jiffy Mix" in any garden places? I think Home Depot may even have it...its 50/50+ already made up for you...a little more expensive I think but your mushrooms will thank you for it.
