you just don't want verm that is fine like sand. Chunky verm is best. Make sure whatever verm you get isn't like sand.

It depends on the application.

To mix with BRF in the PF tek, the coarse verm is the way to go. It provides better aeration. For the barrier at the top of the jar fine verm would work.

For combining with coir or peat in casing mixtures I like to use the medium to fine grade.
