I don't concider Staph. epi, E. coli or E. faecalis to be "non-pathogenic"!
They may be "normal flora" under most conditions, but definately capable of
causing infection - even life threatening ones.

For growth requirements use a good micro reference book like Bergey's or the
ASM (American Society of Microbiologists) Manual of Clinical Microbiology.
