Vermiculite grades

I realize that Iam supposed to use medium-fine grade vermiculite for making PF cakes, but just how big is medium-fine grade? The stuff my local garden center stocks has a particle size of 2-5mm would this work ok?

The bigger stuff is better because it is more airy than the finer stuff. Fine vermiculite works too. I've only used fine vermiculite because that's all I can get around me and it has always worked fine.

I think it is just the opposite. I like the size he is talking about. The bigger the verm, IMO, the more airy it is, true, but the smaller the verm, the more you can have per square inch holding more moisture in. Also, the smaller the verm, the quicker mycelium will be able to get around it than the larger chunks.

Any size verm will work, doesn't really matter, more of a personal preference.
