i would, becuase the casing shrinks in its container and airflow could possibly spread contams onto the bottom layer, i think this would also seal in the moisture of the casing better then not using one. i would stick to the proven method, its not like verm is expensive.

I have always used a bottom layer of perlite with a 10% solution of the 3% h2o2 with great success. I feel the perlite layer allows the casing to drain if too much water is added after the first flush.

i think that would also increase your mositure facture without saturating the casing, thats a good idea ill have ot try that.
