vermiculite?
    #5945632 - 08/08/06 10:42 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I wanted to know if it is possible to substitute perlite for vermiculite in the pf tek? and if it is how should I adjust my substrate mix?

Nope, absolutely not. Some guy tried to bullshit me at Home Depot and tell me it was the same stuff but they're not even close.

No you cant,and if where you live is anything like I live you will NEVER find vermiculite in person so save your self the headaches and the gas from driving all over town looking for it and just order a giant bag online from a shroomery vendor.I recommend mycosupply.Good luck and welcome to the shroomery

vermiculite holds moisture much longer then the perlite

Walmart, HomeDepot, Lowes, and all those other big name stores won't carry vermiculite. I suggest you try any mom-pop nursery you may find.
