Casing Sterility?
    #4541612 - 08/16/05 10:42 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I've been reading about casing procedures and I realize that the top layer of verm/coco coir I'll be using needs to be sterile. But the "casing 101" tek and various post searches that I've found say to just add verm or manure/verm as the bottom layer, add crumbled cakes, then add the sterile casing layer. Doesn't the bottom layer need to be sterilized? Just curious because they don't even mention whether it is sterilized or not.

I dont use a bottom layer, no need for it really. But common sense would suggest that if u should sterilise the top layer then it would be a good idea to do the same for the bottom layer if you going to use one :wink:

That is what I figured but I'm new to this so I'll unfortunately believe pretty much anything until someone tells me not to.

Throw the hydrated casing material in a plastic bag & nuke it a few times 2.5 minutes each & massage between sequences. Seal, allow to cool & case.

In this hobby, it seems like you need to sterilize everything except the h/poo and spores, lol.

Yeah, no shit. I'm DAMN glad I didn't follow Shroom Wizard's grow guide like I had originally planned. I'd probably die from the mass contamination I'd get. For all I know I'd start a new sickness epidemic with that grow guide, lol. Then you all could thank me (my corpse probably) for Valley Fever :smile:

Can you just put some hydrated vermiculite in a mason jar and PC to sterilise it? If so how long should it be PC'd for?
