Observation: verm casing & sweet odor
    #3341577 - 11/10/04 02:57 PM (12 years, 29 days ago)

I was sterilizing some vermiculite that I had wetted down with water and h2o2 in the microwave, and I noticed something. After a bit of nuking I noticed that slightly sweet odor coming from the vermiculite. I had read that people have noticed this in their casings, and some have said it might be bacterial contams. But I'm not so sure, since I noticed this smell on some fresh vermiculite that I was sterilizing...though bacteria may grow quickly, I doubt it is that quick.
So what do you guys think?
And yes, the vermiculite is pure vermiculite with no additives, I checked.

Contams can't just grow on vermiculite, there's no real nutrients in there.

It's probably just the smell that wet vermiculite gives off.

You should be ok.  :thumbup:

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

That's what I thought. I offered this for those who have posted saying that their casings with vermiculite are giving off a sweet odor. I'm not sure whether this is all good or not, since now we know that a sweet odor does not necessarily mean contams, but it may...
Hmmmm.
Keep it up guys.
