I use vermiculite, a fine grain one, only for help mantain the humidity level for those T's that needs humidity on a higher side (which obviously isn't the case of a P.murinus of course) like H.gigas, M.robustum, E.murinus and so forth.

I just add an "hint" of that in the substrate when I make, days prior, the set up for certain T's. Works pretty well for me. I have no clue about the more bigger, rough one, on the other hand.

It's an additive basically and not IMO something to be used as "substrate".
Same here, it seems to hold moisture better when mixed in for species like my haplos.
