Defiently sterlize, right? :smile:

I hear that the compactation into a brick takes a very high temperature and pressure to kill any unwanted dudes.

Lucky you Blue !

We have to break the fucking block apart.....lolz

I usually use a hammer.... slam a few peices off.... shove em in a bowl .... add water.
Then stick it in a pyrex dish.... put it in the oven.... bake at 350 for an hour or so.
Add water when needed.

Haven't had a casing go bad yet.

What is the name of the stuff you found ?

Gday Roadkill - i was going to pm you and ask you personally, but i thought id post this instead.
Its called coco peat - but the guy i bought it off swears that its coco coir proper. Im having more trouble keep this moist than the block stuff ive used in the past for some reason. As i work long hours, its hard for me to spray it.
Have you tried mixing coco coir with a bit of verm to absorb the water and keep it wet???

hi....Blue

No....i don't mix my Coco Coir.
I don't have a problem with it drying out.....cause my humidity is high.
I only have to spray my casings once a day.

Stupid question bro....lolz
My friend got some Aussie money.....I haven't been down under since 1983.
I know the 2 dollar coin.....that one is easy.
how much is the coin with the 20.....with a marine animal with a ducks bill ? 20 cents ?
how much is the coin with the 50......with the roo and ostrich ? 50 cents ?
Is Aussie money still 2 to 1 ?
Thanks !!!

The 20 coin is 20 cents.. with a platypus on it....

The 50 is 50 cents... With an EMU on it, not an ostrich..

The $2 coin didn't exist in 1983...

Sorry Roadkill...
