Is potting soil/ earthworm casting sterile?
    #1568374 - 05/22/03 06:51 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

When u buy a bag of potting soil or earthworm castings, is it cool to use straight out the bag for casing or do they have to sterilized?

You should pasteurize it.

Probablly the best way to pasteurize castings is to put it in a foil tray, add water until it only slightly drips while squeezing, and then put it in the oven at 175degrees for about 2 hours.
