Need to sterilize verm and casing
    #4621093 - 09/05/05 12:44 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

havent posted in a while, been doin ok with the outdoor garden in texas. just had a quick question. how do you sterilize verm and casing layers? i been using them out of the bag and i keep getting green mold after the first flush. they are still magical though. i dont have a pressure cooker so i was wondering how i do it? microwave? stovetop? also can anyone give me a link to an indoor poo casing tech? thank you for all responses

I like to load it into jars all mixed and ready to go and then pc, let cool and use out of the jar when ready. Maybe doing the same and boiling may help. Better then using without doing anything.

The faq has some teks for ya  :wink:

Most things I have read say that you don't need to sterilize casing because the things that grow in it are actually helpfull to the growing process. Maybe try a peat moss based casing with some limestone in it. If you still want to be more carefull cook it in the oven for 2 hours at 150 degrees F.
