What in the world have you found? I've never heard that before. It's always been clear when I use it.

WOW! I have used a lot of PRIME in my time but I've never seen black PRIME!!

Don't know how that happened but I wouldn't use it until I found out!!

Are you sure you didn't accidentally pick up Flourish? Flourish has always been a black color.

If it really is prime, I'd return it...

Yeah - some mixup and this is FLOURISH is the only logical explanation I can think of.

Wonder if the manufacturer goofed and put a Prime label on a bottle of Flourish?

One way to tell if it's Prime or not, is if it smells like sulfur. If it does, it's prime, and return it.

If it smells a little bit earthy, maybe like moist soil, you got flourish somehow.

im for sure taking it back... it smells like sulfur so im thinking its prime but i always shake the bottles and it sounded like rocks at first but when i opened it, it looks like black particles in the water.. so weird... i tried some in just a cup of water to see if i would make it murky or dark and it dissipated quickly but im still not chancing it... thanks everyone!

proof if anyone thinks im crazy... i felt like i was when i opened it!
