health food store or oriental/asian markets sell agar-agar. thats what you want agar-agar.
here is what it is: Agar-agar,  gelatin-like product made primarily from the algae Gelidium and Gracilaria (red seaweeds). Best known as a solidifying component of bacteriological culture media, it is used also in canning meat, fish, and poultry; in cosmetics, medicines, and dentistry; as a clarifying agent in brewing and wine making; as a thickening agent in ice cream, pastries, desserts, and salad dressings; ?

There's a number of Agar recipes in the Cultivation Guides found here...

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23544

Just read through a few and they'll give you an excellent idea of what you need and how to do it. Good luck with your grow!

Interesting idea...How WOULD pectin work as an agar substitute? I've been told that gelatin was a poor substitute but it has never really been explained why. So, what about pectin as a possible agar substitute?

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate
