    I found Perlite and Vermiculite at a local agro store in Pavas, VJ Centroamerica. Phone number is 2220-2011. They are next to the Pizza Hut in Pavas, opposite the boulevard from Antojitos. About 50 meters south of the Pizza Hut.

    Good luck!

      I am in the Philippines and had the same problem. Looked around a long time but finally found it at an agri store. Farmers use it to acidify the soil and stockyards use it to sanitize the pens. Learned a lot about lime or limestone in my quest. It is one of the ancient materials and responsible for many early stone structures. good luck in your quest. Most cultures use it , you just have to find where.
