Dunk + Verm Case Layer
    #1894609 - 09/08/03 04:21 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I've heard a lot about "rolling the cakes in verm" after dunking. I mentioned this to my friend, and he was curious if there is any form of sterilization required before doing this, and also he wanted to know if he is supposed to saturate the vermiculite with water first.

Also, should he remove the dry verm layer or just leave it on there and roll the sides?

Finally.. he wanted to ask if should put the cakes in upside down since his 1/2 pint jars are slightly tapered, making the "bottom" slightly smaller than the top.

Sorry for all the questions but my friend is relatively new and I'm not really into this stuff so I figured I'd ask here.

What's the best way to go about sterilizing dry vermiculite?

hrm.. should my friend use one of those pyrex glass dishes with the plastic top while nuking it, or just an open topped bowl?

It doesn't seem like this stuff needs to be super sterile does it?

I would dampen the verm first,
Im sure microwaves superheat water molecules, I may be wrong

microwaves work by creating the natural frequency of water, causing it to heat up alot. so you're right. but i have found that verm seems to be pretty damn hot after it gets microwaved, so water might not be neccesary.

Where are the horsies? I'm so confused.
