Sterilize casing layer or not
    #513478 - 01/07/02 06:56 PM (16 years, 11 months ago)

There seems to be much controversy in this category. Stamets says not to sterilize the casing layer because of beneficial bacteria. While I have heard others say sterilizing the casing layer is very important.
Personally, I have had better luck with unsterilized casing soil (peat/vermic/lime) But I have run into a fair share of contamination this way. Perhaps a test is in order of side to side casings, like 4 unsterilized and 4 sterilized.
Anyways, what is everyone's opinion on this matter?

Sterilizing is just a precaution when I do it.

I have never had contamination before a 3rd flush if thats any evidence to how well it works. Plus I do it because I am probably the most unsterile grower you will ever meet.
