Substrate Sterilization
    #1158702 - 12/20/02 06:58 PM (18 years, 9 months ago)

For a plain verm casing, does the verm HAVE to be sterilized, since my previous attempt w/ P. cubensis resulted in a cobweb casing?

Yes. Why risk it?

I am not sure if I am getting what your asking but I think my answer is no......not technically, you could pasturize it......

But, has anyone created a straight verm casing without applying any heat to the verm and not gotten any contams?

Never having tried such a thing I cannot say from experience, though I don't see technically why it would not work as most of your contams need something to eat and verm has no nutrative value thus no food.......

I hate to derail, but I was just wondering why you would case with plain verm?

Why not? Previously, I used plain verm which had already been dampened w/ water and it grew cobweb, even though I used the most sterile of procedures.

When you buy verm in bags it comes sterile.

Haha... if it did, then sterilization would be pointless.
