Sterilizing Verm for Casing
    #4320078 - 06/21/05 11:44 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Should I sterilize in the oven, or is the microwave good enough since the cake is fully colonized? I would like to pc, but pcing enough verm to case would take me forever, plus i dont have any empty jars. Could i just pc it in a large glass bowl? Hit me back. :wexican:

I would not use straight verm as a casing layer.

I use peat, verm coir (45/45/10%) & ph adjusted.

Worst case, add some coir to your verm (whatever % you want).

Verm alone is to compact.

If I can't purchase coca coir in my area do you suggest that I just soak the cake and fruit directly instead on pearlite instead of casing? I have peat, but I have had trouble with contamination when using peat in horticulture.

Sadly, I am not a "cake" guy & know very little about the subject.

From what I gather - double ending a cake with verm, then fruiting over perlite in a tub - is the way to go.
