Positive terrarium sterilization confirmation?
    #1155054 - 12/19/02 12:53 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Wow, I had to read that subject line like 5 times........... real slow  :smirk:

Ok, I know about setting up and checking out your terrarium before you put cakes in it, as far as humidity and temp, but is there a way to test whether or not your terrarium is truly sterile? I am almost ready to birth my jars and I'm getting cold feet. I don't want to ruin the whole deal at this point! I didn't sterilize the perlite (brand is Scotts and it does say on the bag that it is sterile) but did use H2o and H2o2 mixture to moisturize the perlite. The terrarium  has been set up for almost a week now and everything looks good. I'm worried that I missed something and all my cakes will die!!!!

From my experience it?s not necessary for the terrarium to be sterile, if it?s clean, it?s good enough.

if you put H202 in the perlite its fine. i just soak my perlite with H202 + splash of bleach , then rise and put in , no extra water needed.
