how sterile do i have to be when casing
    #2369394 - 02/22/04 09:35 PM (13 years, 1 day ago)

ok, so afoaf is gonna case about 6 qts of birdseed in two days with a 50/50 mix of coco coir and vermiculite. Does he really have to be that crazy about contams? If he just throughly cleans his work area with lysol or alcohol, sprays the air with it, and cleans himself well, will he be alright? Should he build a glovebox, or is it even worth the effort? Also, is there any real advantage to using the coir with the vermiculite, or is just straight vermiculite fine? Is just plain vermiculilte less likely to contam?

Just make sure your seed is completely colonized and you'll be fine.

Coir and verm are about the same. Too wet and too long without fresh air and you'll eventually get zapped.
