Someone told me before that styrofoam 'peanuts' work well if you soak them in water.

Styrofoam peanuts are for the most part biodegradeable these days. Once you soak them in water, they dissolve.
The other kind of styrofoam lacks the ability to hold water.
Are you sure there isn't something else?

Geolite works well.

Crunch up some styrofoam packing peanuts, get 'em wet, works as well as perlite. Real styrofoam won't dissolve in water.
