Sterlizing substrate in microwave using gladware container?
    #2340511 - 02/16/04 11:45 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

After making his jars my friend had some extra substrate that he didnt want to go to waste. So he took one of those small, microwavable, gladware containers and put the extra substrate in there. He punched a couple of holes in the lid and used polyfill in them. Could the substrate be sterilized in the microwave on high for 5 min.? Should he add more water? Should he crack the lid, or leave it on since he has a few holes in it? Thanks

I tried sterilizing in the microwave once, I put it in for 10 mins. In the end it was dry and it is just about ready to fruit now. I didn't have any room in my fruiting chamber so i bleached a pop bottle and am using that for a temporary fruiting chamber. Make your holes kinda big so it can vent good, don't want the top to pop off when its cooking, and I'd add extra water too. Why didn't you just sterilize it when you pc'd btw?
