Sterilize vermiculite?
    #1754378 - 07/28/03 01:06 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

A friend of a friend wants to know if he needs to sterlize the vermiculite if he is going to use it for double end casing. Also if he is placing the cakes on top of a screen, should the screen be well above the perlite or should it be sitting on the perlite? Thanks for all the help

u should definitle sterilize ur vermiculite, i usually put moist verm in the micro wave for about 10 min stirring occasionally, after its done pour boiling water on it and let it soak for a min or two to cool off a lil then squeeze some of the excess moisture out before applying to the casing

i put my cakes directly onto the perlite, some say that it burns the funguas but i did not find that at all, put the end of the cake with the verm edge to the bottom of the perlite, the verm at the bottom acts as a barrier between the fungus and the raw perlite. i usually get like between 6 to 8 grams from my half pint brf verm cakes\

hope it helps good luck!
