Casing Material......
    #2576409 - 04/19/04 02:50 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hello again, I've got a few questions and was wondering what everyone thought.....

I have some jars colonizing that I plan to use to case with. I have a few diff casing materials I want to try. 1st Ferry Morse Seed Starter Mix, 2nd Miracle Grow Moisture Control and 3rd Coco Coir.(and of course verm)

I am assuming this stuff is not safe enough to just case with it straight out of the bag. I had planned on putting my materials in quart jars, pcing and then transfering over to freezer bag with double zip lock to keep for use and for patching. But the more I read the more I read about pasterizing. Could I put what I plan to use in a freezer bag, pasterize and then seal then bag? I as long as I am careful not to let water get into the top of the bag or even if it does as long as I squeeze or strain the excess water out.
Most pasterizing advice/tek I have read deal with poo or straw. Just wondering what everyone thought would work or has had work for them before. Thanks!

I have moistened verm straight out of the bag and used it for casing without any problems. Also, I get good results pasturizing horse poo for the substrate.

Verm right out of the bag worksed for me, though I like to add some peroxide to the water.

I found a 2 liter bottle of h202, so I basically add it to everything now.

I'm using 50/50 verm / peat moss...

I over moisten it, cover with plastic wrap and nuke 2 times for 3 mins on high (no probs with contams whatsoever...).  If it turns out too dry, I add a little boiling water straight from the urn.

I also use a touch of h2o2 in my spray bottle for misting (just in case a stray spore sneaks in there :wink: )
