No brown rice flour won't work by it self. Vermiculate is a must. Try finding it on the internet. Or maybe I could send you some.

You don't neccesarily need perlite, you could use an ultra sonic humidifer, or a fish tank bubbler (I never tried that one though).

Perlite however would definetly make it easier for you to keep the humidity.

If you have a pressure cooker I recomend you use rye. This from experience colonizes the fastest, sometimes within a week. A pot on the stove will not suffice, it will allmost positivly get contaminated....unless your growing in the most sterile room...in a hospital or something. I dont know though, never tried it.
