All vermiculite is sterile.  Or at least the kind you kind in gardening stores.  This is why so many people like to use a straight verm casing when they're starting out. 

Let me rephrase..  its not 100% sterile, but it has no nutrients in it which makes it good for casing :smile:  I've never seen a professionally produced bag of verm that says "sterile" on it?

I wish it was just that easy as to go in an garden store an get a bag for 2 bucks. I search everywhere in my area, even in the biggest garden store they have in the city.
They do not carry it for some "health reason" as they reply.
