You need the vermiculite when using BRF (brown rice flour) to keep the cake from turning into a "concrete" block. Any dedicated garden supply store or nursery should have vermiculite. A lot of times the non-dedicated garden supply stores like walmart or home depot will not carry it. As the above post points out, birdseed will work without the need for vermiculite and will probably be your best bet.
