    Hehe. ccgpro this mineral has been used by thousands of horticulturalists and if the risk was anything more than minimal you would be hearing a lot more about it than you do.
    If you feel its a risk your not willing to take you can take pecautions to minimize it.
    that makes no logic

    It takes a real man to snort a fat line of hydrated basaltic minerals! I suppose next you'll be telling us not to smoke cigarettes and that drinking booze while pregnant is bad? I like my lungs black and my uterus well pickled, thank you.

    Spotlight on vermiculite

    Wow! I must be the only one in the whole world that has not heard of the asbestos contaminated vermiculite. Iím a three year newbe with carnivorous plants. I thought I read everything I could about soil mixtures and never ran across this issue.
    Maybe Iím just a little jumpy after just having a Lymphoma the size of a grapefruit, sixteen inches of large intestines, twelve inches of small intestines, my appendix and sixteen lymph nodes removed. Not to worry Iím fine now, cancer free!

    Please let the post drop!

    Thanks!
