Flat Cakes and Verminculite
    #1536732 - 05/10/03 11:58 AM (14 years, 21 days ago)

First of all I would like to say Hello to all my fellow Shroomery Users. I have been sitting in my room quietly and following, watching you guys for quite some time.

Now on to my question:

I have a couple of cakes that I want to try the "Flat Cake" tek on. This requires me to put vermiculite on top of broken up cakes. I have Hoffman Horicultural Vermiculite and its an 8 quart bag. At the bottom, there are little tiny slits for air to get into, so it is not sealed off completely from outside air. Should I use the vermicuilite out of the bag, or should I sterilize it first? I plan on making about 4 flat cakes, and a couple of casings using this vermiculite and just don't know if its safe.

Thank you for your replies.

soory you want to case them.i understood that you want to use them to make cakes..yes if the bag opened sterialize them ..but lots of people here thought and use them

>they pour hot water on verns and its ok .it seems .there is no nutrient in verm that will cause contamination.


but i prefer to sterialize

Works even better if you put in some verm the cakes then the top layer of verm.
