can i sterilize a 50/50 peat/verm mix in the microwave? my poo is pretty much colonized. How long to leave in the microwave? also is it true that you don't have to patch the casing for a double tub.

I've never done a 50/50 casing, but w/ coir/verm you can microwave for 2.5 min at a time for about 7-10 min. Make sure the container you are using is heat resistant. I think PP 5 is what is recomended. Yes it's true you dont have to patch a double tub. I think the trick is when you are inccubating the casing layer only let it go for like 2 days (if @ optimal temps). Then fruit. It may take an extra day or two, but the chances of over aggresive myc. is decreased. Another thing to consider, is to make sure you take your spawn run to the last min. Don't case to early this will only promote more vegative growth for the myc. GL, :grin:
