Wanna sterilize Jiffy Mix without PC?
    #3245708 - 10/12/04 01:15 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

SuP guys. Ordered a Maid of Honor 23qt PC Buuutttt it has not gotten here yet. My question is how do I go about sterilizing jiffy mix so I can case some mycobags that have colonized since I dont want them to pin inside the damn bag cause Im not gonna be getting much from there. Also, unless its really safe doesnt suggest to just throw in the jiffy mix without sterilizing cause Im too paranoid. Thanks for your help and sorry if its been posted already.

You need to pasturize jiffy mix ....get coir/verm its better for casing

You could pasteurize it in the oven at 170 F for like 60-90 min's. I've microwaved my casing mixes before for about 4-5 min's also like aussieone said and it turned out ok for me.
Jiffymix is 50/50 (peat/verm.) if i'm not mistaken.
