    #1245079 - 01/24/03 07:22 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

i exacly dont know but i think in a few days my 4 timed casing look a little dry to me because i havent got enough verms so i collect my old verms from the garden but its really to boring from some moment .then i use some horse dung .in the morning i give a mist to my incubated casings they really look to dry to me maybe its the cause of dunk .if i decided to use a little verm on top do i have to put them in pc or just soak in water a then put the top of my casing layer

The general consensus here seems to be that there is no need to sterilize verm. It's basically carbon and assorted minerals, so there is no nutrition for moulds or bacteria to feed on. I've covered several casings with unsterilized verm and so far no problems (knock on wood)

I don't know if it's just because I'm high or what, but I can't seem to understand exactly what you are trying to say. I steralize my vermiculite for 10 minutes in the microwave, but I have also used unsteralized vermiculite with success. I would steralize it though.

Well I dont normally sterilize vermiculite.... but then agian I dont go and pick it out of my garden piece by piece. In your case, I'd nuke it a few min then it should all be good.
And then go buy yourself a bag of fresh vermiculite...
