I'm pretty new, but I can see several problems with this idea:
(Anyone feel free to correct me)

1) Nutrients are used up during incubation, and not during fruiting.

2) I don't see how the nutrients could make it in to the fungus at this stage.

3) Since Miracle Gro is meant for plants, and not fungus, the spectrum of nutrients might be all wrong for fungus.

4) There is a risk of over-fertilization/damage.

5) You shouldn't consume anything that has fertilizer like this in it. (Pot growers recommend ending fertilization 2 weeks before maturity, for this reason.)

Stick to ordinary perlite. Good luck!

Advantages: none
Disadvantages: using a nutrient rich substance for humidification would be welcoming contaminants.

I use it when the store is out of the regular and have never had a contam problem.

Just my 2 cents though.

As long as your not placing your cakes on top of the perlite it shouldnt hurt a thing. Just add some extra h202 to it.
