microwave sterilization of casing material
    #1783092 - 08/05/03 10:40 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

dude has been microwaving a 60/40 verm/coir casing mixture in the microwave. Every single time it is placed in the microwave for ten minutes, the lid of the container eventually pops off and it zaps all the moisture from the casing mix. How can the proper moisture be maintained? Many things have been tried, but the moisture always escapes!!

i usually add much more water than field capacity, microwave for two sessions of three minutes, between sessions i stir the mix. i let the mix cool and wash my hands in alcohol, let them air dry, then put the casing mix on by hand, first squeezing the mix to field capacity
