Vermiculite has firmly wormed its way into the mushroom cultivation sectors due to its high moisture (fungal fruit bodies are 80% moisture) retention characteristics and the ability to lighten up and aerate bulk substrates. It is also very successfully used as casing.  Hobbyist & enthusiasts use a mix consisting of  50:50 peat:vermiculite with gypsum and lime for added calcium & to buffer pH to around 7.5.

Sourced from a specialized mushroom substrate supplier, made of select long-fibered blond sphagnum peat moss for general commercial use. It provides a high degree of water retention and air porosity for a wide range of applications that require high fibrosity and high moisture.
