I would consider rye grain mediums on a fairly even keel with PF's formula...Grains as a whole are generally considered to be on the low to moderate end of the difficulty scale, however I would still recommend using a BRF medium for starters...

The problem with the rye tek is that you have to get the water content just right.
This is also true for the PF tek, but it is somehow easyer and not so critical.
When preparing the substrate, do it this way:
Put the required amount of vermiculite in a bowl(NOT for each jar separately!). Use a spatula or spoon to mix in enough water to make the vermiculite about as damp as it can be without feeling soggy, mix well. (A small puddle, very small, should form at the bottom of the bowl when tilting the bowl). Then add the appropriate amount of BRF and mix together. The idea is to coat the wet vermiculite particles with the dry powder as you stir the mix with the spatula. This sounds trivial but it makes all the difference.

Probably not.
