heat it in water. but the only reason i can think of for doing it at all is if you're using it in a casing. if you're using it for humidification, add some h2o2 and leave it at that.

Why....

and why would you use it as a casing !!!! - previous poster

Just mix with tap water and off you go - if your paranoid add a bit of H202 (1 part per 20 parts water would be fine)

Perlite is sterile when you get i cause its being created at 2000 degrees CELSIUS or something, right?

But if you are a cheap bastard like me, you recycle and then you just heat it in the oven for half an hour.....right?

dude, you use 1/2 inch of perlte with h202 mixed with water(20:1) at bottom of ur chamber to maintain ur humidity, you can put the colonized grain right on top, then the verm on top of that..if ur humidifier pooches ovenight r sumthin..the perlite will keep the humidity up..it works good in conjunction with any humidifier
