Do I need to have holes in my lids? Should I moisten the verm or leave it dry? Thanks

"To sterilize vermiculite put in microwave safe container (spread out evenly) for ten minutes, then stir and use. Also make sure to wet the vermiculite to target moisture before microwaving."

I can't remember if I wrote that or pulled it from some post, but it should work.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

you may lose some moisture during microwaving so just check again before adding to substrate.
