BIRTHDAY!!!!!
    #2271401 - 01/25/04 01:30 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hey everyone... I just got done birthing 4 out of 12 jars. 3 of them have been at 100% for a couple of days now and the 4th finished last night. I have a rubbermaid tub with about a 1/2 inch of perlite. I didnt dunk them but I put moist verm on the bottom and top of the cakes. I'll keep you posted when I start seeing pins.

FWIW, I have never sterilized the vermiculite used when rolling the cakes and have had zero contamination. But it can't hurt to be extra careful.

verm is sterile to begin with. When its made its heated to ~1500deg then cooled and bagged. The bags were just made from molten plastic so they are mostly sterile too.

It's not true that verm is already sterile IMO.  :thumbdown:
For sure when you buy it in big bag it's sealed and has passed a long
process of sterilization, but after a period bacteria can get inside
it. That's the reason why is necessary to boil the substrate.

For the birthing the sterilization of the verm should not be necessary
because the mycelium got alredy the strenght to defend him self from
contam... but...I would sterilize it anyway :wink:
