Sterilizing casing substrates
    #2424934 - 03/12/04 07:03 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

A friend was wondering if it is necessary to sterilize a 50/50 verm. and peat moss casing substrate. If so, can it be done without a PC? T

Thanks in advance for helping!

casing and substrate are 2 different things..

substrate = nutrient

casing = for moisture

you want to sterilze the casing either by microwave or oven tek.

you could throw the 50/50 mix into a cut off cotton shirt and put that in a pot of boiling water too. thats what i use to do, i hear microwave works well. but after melting a few trays i gave up the microwave.
