Fineness of Vermiculite
    #1058994 - 11/16/02 11:20 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

The only vermiculite that I can find is very fine. Almost like sand. Is this why it is taking so long for my jars to colonize. They look fine, they're just taking a long time. I figure its because they aren't as airy. A friend of mine thinks differently.

Any help will be great.

Also, i had some jars on a heating pad and the pad accidentally got bumped to medium, heating up the jars to 100?+. Do you think the jars are bunk?

How long is long(colonization time)? If you do a search in this forum, you will find a recent thread with this debate.

About your jars on the heating pad, thermal death for mycelium is 106 F, so I'd say they'll probably be alright.
