Sterilizing the verm isn't needed, but I do it anyway. I do mine in a covered double boiler for an hour. The green, always the green. If you can't wait for full colonization, cut away any uncolonized portions and case. You're really better off waiting for the jars to colonize 100%.

Do u remember the guns and roses song ?? Patience!! Wait till the jar is colonized. If its slow, turn the jar upside down. I just put my vermiculate in the microwave for like 4-5 min.

i'm getting very impatient, but i think i can wait. do i put verm in microwave dry? and is it ok to directly mist with h2o2 once they're cased or does this damage the mycelium?
