The only time I tried it without sterilizing I ended up with massive cobweb. It was deep within the vermiculite I poured down the sides to take up the empty space where the casing pulled away. I will never use vermiculite right out of the bag again...

Better safe than sorry, especially in this hobby.

I had the same prob ATWAR had, i put unsterilized verm in my casing and ended up with cobweb all over. It won't hurt to nuke it for 5 minutes, thats all i do and haven't had a prob with contam since **knocks on wood**

If Time is considered linear and represented by a straight line of 180deg. Then it is easy to conjecture that infinity/eternity can be identified by a circle . A circle has no beginning and no ending.
