I don't think my moisture content is fucked, and byt the way, I didn't put the verm in the microwave, I only put the verm after I had innoculated.....

Hi,
may I ask, do you not have access to a pressure cooker? You may be very lucky, but I would guess that the microwave will not sufficiently sterilize your substrate. Additionally I would think that vermiculite would carry all kinds of loose contam spores, bacteria, etc.
I hope I am wrong, but I would think that you will end up with a contaminated bag. Unless you are doing some kind of peroxide technique that you have not mentioned.

I'm just experimenting anyway, and its been almost 2 weeks with no contams. I'm experienced with using straight un sterilised vermiculite, and have never had very very few contams problems with it. Also I have a very high powered microwave.
May I ask in what way you think my moisture content is "fucked" ??

I always have uneven moisture using microwave sterilization. The water evaporates from where its in contact with the glass and forms droplets at the top. If you have a shakable substrate though, a few shakes distributes it enough that itll colonize well.
