sterile verm?
    #4585406 - 08/26/05 10:31 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

i have an opened bag of verm that i'm about to use in an upcoming grow, would the chances of contamination be higher due to it's exposure to outside air? vermiculite is heated past the point of sterilization to get it to puff up like it does, so i would think it would be pretty much sterilized in an unopened bag. should i use it or go buy a new one?

no its not sterilized. no you dont need to buy a new bag. It will however be sterilized when you put it in the pressure cooker for one hour at 15psi :smile:

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."
