Discovery NotesThe soil was collected from a plant bed that contained palm plants. The fallen, dead leaves provided a thick covering for the soil. This allowed dark, moist conditions for bacteria to thrive. The rotting vegetation was about 1 1/2" thick. This plant bed was frequented by feral cats in the area. After rain, there was a strong musky odor coming from the plant bed.
Naming NotesWe wanted to play on the word "Phased" which means to carry out in gradual stages. Also it sounds like "Fazed" which means to disturb or disconcert.
