Jiffy mix, seed starter. The ph is adjusted for you. Just be surew to sterilize it first. I have found bags with insect eggs in it.

I was thinking about peat moss, but after lookin into it bit further, I'd say coir would be the next best to vermiculite.

Pretty sure pelite will NOT be a good substitute for verm...Perlite doesnt hold moisture and release it like verm.....and I dont think you would want to pc perlite...
