Right now I have a few oven bags with straw and worm castings growing extremely well...but I want to move them into a large container to fruit so I can break it up and case it, last time I did this I got green mold on the bottom...I can only assume this came from the container itself. What's the best way to sterilize the container, too big to fit into my autoclave?

What I do.

Get some Bleach water. Not too much bleach though, or it will kill your respiratory system. Doesn't take much bleach.

Spray it down real good (including the lid) and let it sit for a few minutes. Then wipe really good with a paper towel until the bleach is completely dried up.

That should get it plenty sterile enough. Bleach will kill damn near anything.

Good Luck!!

You can put a layer of verm on the bottom of the container to soak up any excess water, rather than your substrate sitting in a contam friendly puddle

My recomendation...poke a couple of holes in the botton of the tray...I have seen this hundreds of time..CO2 builds up at the bottom of the tray, mixed with Mycelium piss and it greens on the bottom...

Not that it matters much...you usually get good flushes for a while anyway...but it tends to overheat...
