Is it possible to sterilyze Coco coir + Verm in a microwave???

Subject pretty self explanatory...

Does it work? How long should nuke it for? Should I add water or anything to the mix? I was thinking about 60% coco coir + 40% verm.

Thanks

5-10 minutes works fine.  Yes you need to add water.  What would the point of sterilizing be if you added unsterile water afterwards? :tongue:

Make sure you let it cool plenty. I recently lost 4 casings because I didn't let it cool enough and killed my mycelium when I cased it with too hot a mixture. No more micro-wave for me. I just PC up a couple 1/2 gallons of casing mix and store it till needed.
