you can, but it won't humitify very well. vermiculate and perlite are two very different substances. vermiculate is used a lot because it holds water very well. perlite is used because it's a very porous rock, which means there's a lot more surface area for water to evaporate from, so it humidifies very well. vermiculate won't do anything for humidification.

Wonder had gone away, and he had forgotten that all life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.  -- H.P. Lovecraft "The Silver Key"

Hey shroomerzil,
What LINK said above is correct. I don't think their would be one person in here that would tell you to use VERM. instead of perlite. Verm. is really only good for substrate mix. Good Luck!!

If your not living on the edge....Then your taking up to much space.
