need a casing
    #1610156 - 06/05/03 03:36 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

my dog's friend needs a casing for some grass clippings but is out of verm (the only thing he had for a casing) Could expanded peat pellets be crumbled for a casing. or even a verm/potting soil casing? (I know i said he's out of verm but he has a bit of potting soil mixed with verm already 50/50 mix)any thoughts?

You could use those peat pellets. They are the seed starter things right?

You should really PC 'em up before using however...dunk them in some water.

he doesn't have a pc and never used the microwave to sterilize. Throwing them in a jar and bioling the jar for an hour would be ok right?

Sounds like a fine idea. If you wanted you could just microwave it for about 5 mins.

Just put the stuff in a pot and boil it for an hour. However, I suggest you humidify the casing first, let is rest for a couple of hours, and then sterilize it in the aforementioned manner. This way, the chance of contamination with ciste forming species is much smaller.
