Perlite cannot be used instead of vermiculite in the substrate. Well it could but probably with bad results. It does not have the water retaining properties that vermiculite has.

I  ASS U ME D that because it was so good to use as a humidifying tech that it would work just as well in the sub ? I thought from my gardening exp I only noticed that perilite releases water faster but holds significantly more do to being more pourous .
But in mushrooms that slower release of water into sub is so important , hmmmmm , very interesting  use the right tool for the right job and wala the fungus will be umong us !

:cool:
