perlite vs vermiculite
    #4211435 - 05/23/05 08:52 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

in a pinch, if one can find perlite but no vermiculite easy, can the perlite be a suitable substitute for the vermiculite in the standard PF Tek recipe? Does the ratio need altered or what? If it's usable at all..

much appreciated, thanks alot!

Hi, not a good option to use perlite over verm. The verm absorbs water and therefore keeps the cake supplied with water. Perlite is volcanic rock/glass that only collects water in the tiny pockets of the rock which evaporate rather quickly.  Try ordering verm off line if all else fails. :smile: bluhoney
