Dark Brown Vermiculite
    #14291004 - 04/14/11 06:05 PM (10 years, 26 days ago)

I already searched around as much as possible and nothing answered my question.

I just purchased a brand new bag of vermiculite from MycoPath.  I've always purchased my verm from them and never had any issues.

I just received my order and noticed the vermiculite was very dark brown, much darker than any verm I've ever come across.

Has anyone seen vermiculite darker than the "usual color?"

I'll go take pics to show what I mean.

The old bag is on the left and the BRAND NEW bag is on the right.

See how much darker it is?

Has anyone ever come across Vermiculite this dark?

Thank you in advance!  :awecid:

The stuff I have been using looks identical.  I order from a different supplier and receive it in the same style of bags as well, but it is dark just as yours is.  Don't worry though, it is colonizing as we speak.

Thanks for the reply.  Good to know...

I was pretty sure it would be OK to use but wanted to make sure 100%...

It looked and smelled and had the same texture as all the other vermiculite I've ever used, just was much darker... almost red hues.

Anyways, thanks again!
