So you replaced the vermiculite with perlite? Definetly keep us updated on the results. I've never heard of such a thing.

I have tried adding or substatuting perlite for vermiculite in caseing and substrate.. i found it (in the substrate's case) dried out faster..
anyway, tell me how yours turns out

Back again. So here we are: the glasses (oh poor my, dont even found good jars for`em :smile: were inoculated at dec.29, and all ten of them colonizing now nicely. As this is my first attempt to grow, I dont know how fast they are, all I can see is that they`re on the run.
I`ve thought that perlite is much more porous (poorous :smile:material than vermiculite, thats why the pf max fruiting formula was chosen, because of the higher water percentage in it.
Anyway, no water droplets (even tiniest water particles) I can see in them, (definitely dryish) so I`ve decided to put some plastic containers in the drawer too, containing water with a little organic cleaner, to keep contamrisk as down as it could.
They seem very healthy now, and perlite is colonized too, not on the inside, but woven together with the brownricepowder (i call it just brice :smile:.
Few questions i have, please help me if you can: How can i see, if the substrate is too dry, and what can I do? Injecting some distilled water to the inside or sg?
Now it don`t seems to be a problem, but hey, who knows?
The only one PES/Hawaiian colonizing faster, but its probably because more spores injected in it, the other nine PF are just OK, Im a newbie but I think the PF spores were a bit old, and nothing was visible in the blunt. PS/Hawaii was more visible.
Thats for now, I`ll definitely report again.

just wanted to comment that perlite is not good to ingest... it is basically glass. make sure to pick all of it off your mushrooms when you pick them.
