I've tried a number of different media and found that perlite works best. 
Just plain perlite that you can buy at a builder's supply.  Add as much
water as the perlite will soak up, drain away any excess.  Also, don't
completely seal the bags.  Fold-over sandwich bags work.  Zip-Lock bags
promote the green slime.
