casing questions
    #3649298 - 01/19/05 06:26 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Im just about to case, but cannot find any alcohol, so can I use lysol wipes to sterilize my aluminum trays instead? And when I sterilize my verm, how long do I put it into the microwave for? I heard for 15 minutes, but please correct me if im wrong..

I'm a newbie but can tell you that I disinfected with lysol wipes and it worked fine. Just be sure they are dry before you put your casing in. Also, I nuked some vermiculite for 5 minutes in a 900 watt microwave at high and it seemed like long enough . I base this on how smoking hot it was! Ouch!

You can find Isopropyl rubbing alcohol in any drug store for around $1.00
I've never tried lysol wipes... So I have no idea how good they would work.

I microwave my casing material in the microwave for 10 minutes.
Stirr it up and nuke it again for another 10 minutes.
Then let it cool down before using.

Well I just put some verm in the microwave for 5 min, took it out to check and the bowl cracked, great. Anyways I was reading the Casing 101 method, and didnt see anywhere that I needed peatmoss, so I went ahead and did everything, without the peat moss, realizing after that I forgot to use some for the top layer. Well I dont want to trhow it out, or start over cause its all done, so what will happen with a bottom and top layer of verm, no peat moss at all? Will the mycellium even colonize?

It should still work, but I've heard the result are not as good as when you mix coir with verm or peat with verm.

just get you some jiffy mix from walmart, kmart wherever, i hear it works pretty damn good on it's own, but i think i'll be using it w/ like a 2:1 jiffy/verm mix - it's pretty cheap too

You can also cover the alum pan with some foil and then put in oven for 1 hr @350*F , that will sterilize it , just make sure you let it fully cool before you toss in your spawned bulk , or grain to be cased .

Jiffy mix is already 50% peat 50% verm IIRC. If it is you dont want to add more verm, that ratio is fine. You want about 50% of verm with peat and 30%-50% verm with coir.
