can I sterilize this way.
    #3093690 - 09/05/04 02:30 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi I was just wondering what your opinions would be on Sterilizing popcorn using an oven in pyrex opposed to sterilizing using a pressure cooker?  Im just wondering if this would work because i dont have a pressure cooker.  Ive liked the results that i've  gotten using popcorn and would rather use it rather than PF cakes.
I'll appreciate anybodys judgment on the matter,  Thanks :thumbup:

My friend actaully bestowed upon me 12 fully colonized popcorn glasses, to my delight. Well Ive had some luck actually without using a PC I've had sucesfull grows with and BRF cakes and even using just regular delta brand white rice. I was thinking about maybe even trying jars with vermiculite and corn meal and water. I was more worried more about the popcorn drying up if sterized in the oven.

Right on George. That's good advice for everyone. Pressure cookers are fairly cheap. I wouldn't even bother with doing pf, until I had saved up $20 to get a cheap walmart PC.

Shit, you can even buy it and then take it back within 30 days if you're that cheap!

well thats where the problem lies. I was kinda without work for awhile due to me moving cities, hence money is kinda tight presently. well atleast for the next two weeks when I get my wages from my new job. So I was trying to come up with some novel ways of growing them until Iam with money. I have grown without a pressure cooker before i just wondered if using an oven would be a sufficing practice to use forthwith?

Here is something I found in a lab manual...

Oven temperatures and time for sterilization
120?C 8 hours
140?C 3 hours
160?C 1 hour
180?C 20 min.

I have no idea if this is reasonable or not, they talk about using it for tools and glassware.
