vemiculite or perlite?

I've seen guides that reccomend both, but which is best?

Verm is used in substrates and casing mixes for aeration. Perlite is used for humidification.... What are you wanting to use it for???

Best to use both, in their applications. They are different things and should be used for their own unique and different purposes. Neither are substitutes for the other.
