The annual rye grass seed is the standard. It is the cheapest and least likely to contain fungicide. It is intended only for temporary lawns and grassy areas since, being an annual, it dies after it matures. Which is pretty shitty if you don't know what annual means and get this nice cheap seed for your lawn. It doesn't say on the package that "Your lawn will self destruct after one year". I am sure any grass seed without fungicide (usually a brightly colored coating) would work just as well.

The optimal grain may or may not be grass seed. I have heard reports that the higher moisture capacity of rice increases sclerotia yield. I have noticed that insufficiently moist grass seed forms only small scattered sclerotia. It might be a good idea to add a small percentage of rice to a seed mix as a water reservoir. Don't add vermiculite, it sticks to the sclerotia and doesn't come off easily.

It sounds to me as if you would have learned this by the hard way :wink:
Instead of the vermiculite, which I definitelly don't like, maybe coco fiber would help to have a higher water content (without saturation of course). I was about to test it yesterday, but I didn't do it because of laziness. I'm  looking for a way to prevent the seed from clumping... The next time I will test it.
