No. Perlite, is used to wick water into the air, creating humidity. Usually by placing in the bottom of the fruiting chamber.Vermiculite,has many different uses. As a contam barrier, gas filter, moisture control, consistency control in recipies, many, many uses. When used in soils, then yes, they can be interchangable. But in the case of mycology, sorry but no.
