vermiculite ?
    #3527941 - 12/21/04 03:31 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

okay so i have always been customed to using the fine grade vermiculite...this time I have used the larger chunks sold at my supermarket, the mix looks TOTALLY different and when you boil them it kinda turns brown. Will I be okay? Or am i just wasting my time. what if I possibly cooked the rice...would it grow then?

How chunky is it? 1-4mm is what I use and I like it, "Horticultural Grade". If its course they can have peices 5-9mm big and you could slightly chop it down with a grinder with a couple of pulses.

I think it should grow and you just noticed brown water absorbed by it because of its size. I'm not sure what you mean though..I think it always turn brown but very fine verm might not absorb water as well. The only reason it should have problems if it was to wet or not sterilized correctly. Which by the way when you sterilize it, you do cook the rice..youve never boiled rice then ate it? Just make sure it cools down before you stick spores into it and it wont cook the spores or mycelium, THATS a problem.
