Microwave / Boil Question
    #1868507 - 08/31/03 04:08 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I read a post from a while ago about how to microwave for 5 minutes, boil for an hour, and then microwave for 5 minutes again. This was using bird seed, but i am using vermiculite and brown rice flour mix. Can i still use this method? I am also worried that my substrate will get to dry. Any ideas on what i should do to prevent this?

You can use this method, but personally I think the microwave parts can be skipped. To prevent substrate from drying out in the microwave oven, cover the jars with microwavable foil.

Then again, I don't see tha added value of the two microwave actions. I'd say, sterilize the substrate, preferably in a pressure cooker, but if you don't have one, sterilize by boiling in a cooking pot for at least an hour.

No prob, I like to help people out... :smile:

If you're going with the regular cooking pot, keep this in mind:
Make sure there's always enough water in the pot while cooking. You don't want the pot to boil dry, causing your jars to rest on the bottom with no water around to spread the heat. I've been there :wink: As an extra safeline, you can place the pots on a folded towel.

Furthermore, use your common sense instead of following a TEK or advice without first regarding it critically. It's always possible that your specific situation is different from the situations TEKs assume or other people assume when giving advice. If in doubt about something, ask.
