when you dunk and roll are you supposed to steralize the vermiculite first?

vermicullite is a non nutritional substance. so is sphagnum. You can get away with not sterilizing it. HOWEVER, a little bit of precataution goes along way against misery further down the line. if you've waited a week for colonization... an hour to sterilize it seems miniscule.

I've done it both ways. I've soaked the verm in h2o/h2o2 solution, I've microwaved with just water and let cool, and I've also just rolled in verm right out of the bag and then misted h2o. I've had no problems with any of those methods. Once the cake is collonised, the myc seems to have a pretty good defense system (weaker in later flushes). I think with a casing is when you should worry about sterilizing your casing mix... but even then, some people will argue that it doesn't really matter.
