Yes it can and does happen seems to occur from overly humid conditions and or improper air exchanges .

vermiculite cannot be contaminated since it has no nutrients... at least thats what I'm told.

Yes it can, it has happen to me , I got the green shit, when I tossed my casing the whole bottom was covered with the green shit.
I did not do enough air exchange and it was to humid I was very busy with work
and did not pay close attention to my project

Which makes sense... it is devoid of nutrients.... contams COULD feed off of the water held in the vermiculite.. however their point of origin was most likely NOT the vermiculite... unless of course it had some spores on it maybe...

One thing's for sure; Brown rice flour mixed with Vermiculite can mold. I had too much substrate mix and decided I'd put it all back in vermiculite bag after I had already wetted it- there was a cake of equivalently 2 pint jars worth of mold in the bag- I could pick it up and throw it away.

It's a big bag, so I just dug deep into the bag and rolled my cake in the fresh verm below.
