Has every body been abducted by aliens?

I was in a propagation fever the other day, so I trimmed a lot of my leggy scenteds.  I was out of peat and potting soil, so I just used pure vermiculite.
It was a disaster.  I have never had black leg before, and now more than half the cuttings--maybe more--have died.  Is this a common problem with vermiculite only rooting?  Could it be the lack of bacteria from the peat and potting soil that allows the fungi to grow? Geesh.
