Verm Substitute
    #3819932 - 02/23/05 12:29 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I have had a hell of a time looking for vermiculite. I have looked at atwoods, wal-mart, lowes, and every nursery in town. No place here has it for some reason. Is there a good substitute for verm or do I just need to order some online? I was also wondering what the exact purpose of the vermiculite was besides giving the myc some room to grow. I was gonna order some verm off of myco-supply but I thought I'd ask here first before I go through the trouble.

What will you be using it for? As a substrate? You may want to look into grains...or order some online

Order it online, its wicked cheap. Especially if you order lots of it. Any horticultural site should carry.

Plus ordering it online you don't get stupid/suspicious looks from a sales clerk.

I walked into a garden store in the middle of winter and bought 2 bags of verm, the dumb sales lady looked at me like I was fucking Hitler. Wanted to smack the shit outta the bitch!

there is n good sub when making pf brf cakes. i had a hard time finding it myself but i am sure if you look hard enough you will find some. i have a nearby nursery that i found it at. i think it is funny when i go in there when it is snowing and buy verm. i wonder what they think i am using it for when i buy a bag every other week in the dead of winter.

Lol a co-worker who I stumbled upon in a market wondered what I was doing with the 4W floro and a digital PH-meter, he also assumed weed :grin:
