microwave sterilization?
    #11414093 - 11/08/09 10:45 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

so i decided i wanna do a casing with coir/verm/coffe ground mix
after reading around on the site i decided to follow these steps

fill tray 1/2" moist verm
slice/crumble the cakes above that
cover with moist verm lightly
then top it off with the verm coir (40/60) plus some coffe grounds

my question is,
i remember reading somewhere that you can just throw the coir/verm combo in the microwave for a few min to sterilize rather than boiling it in a pot, does that really work the same? probaly a stupid question
but let me know please


thanks

nuke on high for 4-5 minutes. works great, never had any problems. The bowl or tray will get very hot though so watch out. add a little extra moisture to what the recipe says to make up for some moisture loss during nuking

And what you are doing. A little bit of LC is easier to sterilize than a gallon of substrate.
And as for pasteurization in a microwave... it's unlikely.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?

I have only ever sterilized casings in the microwave and I have had great success with a variety of edibles over time.

Peat/Verm to field capacity and microwave for a minute or two, as I usually only whip up enough casing for a small batch.

My first attempt at growing mushrooms was with a kit that included microwave sterilization in their instructions, and it's never let me down. 
Fast and EZ.  If it didn't work, I would have stopped doing it that way ages ago.
