Great news!
Thanks for that research.
I have a source of big HDPE containers.
I will try to autoclave some substrate in them and post the results.

I woulda thought polyethylene would melt at PC temps.

Polypropylene can handle high temps, but in My experience PE gets very soft at relatively low temps.

HDPE melts at between 110C and 160C. If you find one that stands up to the heat, continue using that same type.
