question
    #3212330 - 10/04/04 02:37 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I bought an eighth today and on the end of one of the stems there was this shiny substance. I have some geological classes under my belt and this substance looked like mica, you know the soft mineral that flakes when you pick at it. This substance has a bronze luster to it, I was wondering if anyone has ever seen anything like this before, I'm sure I'm not the first. anyway I just wanted to know what it is and what it means?

That's vermiculite (yep, mica) :P It's commonly used in casings and substrates. Have no fear, just a product of picking them from a casing.

It must be nice to know that the shroomies were on vermiculite instead of poo, huh?

still the shrooms will grow from top of the casing where it was most likely verm or verm/coir.
