I've heard of it working-hyper is probably right now. But I understand it's not readily available to some people. I'd say this is an absolute last resort.

Doo doo or straw to case? Casings are non-nutritive (sp?).

PCing sterilizes shit, pasteurizing kills harmful bacteria and saves the beneficial bacteria. Baking can sterilize or pasteurize shit, depending on how you do it.

look at the ingredients of the potting mix before you buy .avoid anything with fertilizer in it .

Jiffy Mix is a good brand .it contains peat moss, vermiculite, and oyster shell .

yes, Jiffy Mix potting soil .

there is also a Jiffy Mix Plus on the market, i think it can be used, if you rinse it real good to get the chemical fertilizer out .
