Rich,
I use 75% peet 25% verm.
For my T's that don't need much moisture I use 100% peet.

Vermic/Peat

Your Vermic/Peat mixture depends on the environment that the animal comes from. For T's from drier environments, rose hairs, etc, I use more peat than vermic, like 80% peat, 20% vermic. For tropical T's like goliaths, I may use the opposite, 80% vermic, 20% peat. Vermic holds the moisture better.
