To sterilize jiffy mix just nuke it in a microwave for 6-10 minutes depending on the amount of jiffy mix. You must first add water to the jiffy mix enough so that the mix is not runny then into the nmicrowave it goes. When you apply the casing layer allow the myc to show through the jiffy mix then its ready to fruit.

Jiffy-mix should not be sterilized in a PC even if you have one. PC's are for grain, jars, agar, and other items used at the start of the growing process. Casing mixtures, like jiffy-mix, should be Pasteurized...but not sterilized so the microwave tek is all you need. Jiffy-mix should be moist but not so wet that you can squeeze the water out.

Why do you say this? I've PCed 50/50 peat/verm casing and had fine results.
