question about sterilising coir/verm
    #2555854 - 04/13/04 07:07 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

For microwave-sterilization of vermiculite and coco coir, what sort of container should they be in? Last time my foaf tried this he ended up with some tupperware with a caved-in lid. Also does the verm need to be moist already?

Go to walmart or kmart or any other of those gross mart places and find the cooking section, they have microwavable safe bowls and such, also they have real cheap plastic ones that will say if they are microwavable safe for like $4 for 3 or so.

any $1 sterlite container is microwavable safe, and then u put some plastic wrap on top, nuke for 5, spray lysol (water/bleach) let it sit for about 5 mins, nuke again, let it cool down and case.... i dont nuke anymore tho, i usually get oven bags and pasteurize anything i use, i find it that works alot better, thats just me ofcourse.
