How to sterilized casing ingredients w/o a pc?!?!
    #2925631 - 07/25/04 12:02 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I heard something about turkey bags that you put in the oven. I was thinking maybe along the lines of getting casing ingredients saturated but not somping wet and putting it in the oven in a metal pan. Not hot enough to burn the verm. but kill the contams. This chicken bag idea is interesting too but I can't find shit. Peace Rudiger420

You can use oven on vermiculite that is correct

IMO there is no need to sterilize casing layers. Well at least not where I live. I use unsterilized verm and peat moss mix or unsterilized peat based potting soil and coffee as casing layers.
bulk substrate is getting pasturized only. but other than that I sterlize only when starting a new cultur from spores.

Rud - Mystiq is right about the oven sterilization, but I disagree with the need for sterilization of casing layers. I've always sterilized mine after I had some nasty green tear through all my trays. Mix your casing layer to the right consistency, then add more water. Microwave it (in a plastic container) on 5-10 minute bursts. Eventually you'll see steam start to rise out of it. Stir and fluff with a fork after each "burst". Keep doing this until your casing layer is at the right mixture. Some people feel that certain microorganisms help p. cubensis fruit, if you are one of those people, mix 5% dung into the casing layer (Stamets talks about this in, I think, GGMM) to allow those microorganisms to flourish. I think that step is unnecessary in a p. cubensis grow setting, as they pin so easily and readily. Good luck with your attempts.

You are probably better off pasteurizing the ingredients in the oven at 170/f for an hour than sterilizing it.
