Monsters vs Aliens

On the day of her wedding, Susan Murphy is hit by a meteor, which causes her to grow to gigantic size. She is captured by the military and held in a secret facility underground. There, she meets other monsters, like half-man, half-fish The Missing Link; an indestructible blob named B.O.B.; brilliant scientist Dr. Cockroach; and a giant grub named Insectosaurus. When an alien attacks Earth, the government decides to turn the monsters loose to fight the aliens.

Factual error: Gallaxhar scans the galaxy to find the missing quantonium. The scanner zooms in on earth, showing it to be very close to the center of the galaxy. Earth is actually nowhere near the center of the galaxy; it's located much closer to the outer edge.

Question: When Susan grew after being affected by the Quantonium meteorite, why do no other life forms, such as insects in the grass, not also grow?

The Yeti

Chosen answer: Well, it's a fiction movie; some suspension of disbelief is always needed. There could be a number of explanations: for instance, lifeforms such as insects on the grass, bacteria inside them or even grass itself, being unable to absorb quantonium. It might affect only sentient beings. Or Susan might even be the first being to get in contact with the substance - this would be possible depending on the shape of the meteorite container, the exact means by which quantonium touches her body - which isn't shown... but, first and foremost, this happens because its not happening would leave the filmmakers with a plot issue to be dealt with - so, other beings don't grow simply because they don't.
