Should you sterilize vermiculite before using as casing material? Does water have to be boiled or distilled? Anyone? Please hurry...

It doesn't really need to be sterilized, IMO. It should at least be pasteurized, however. Just throw it in a jar, cover with some plastic wrap, and nuke on high for 10 minutes.

Of course, if you have problems with contams, it might be better to PC it.

Vermiculite contains no nutrients and is highly resistant to contamination. Just use bottled distilled or spring water mixed with a 10% solution of H2O2(3%) and you will be fine.

It will be fine. In a few weeks you should be making lots more of your magic solution.

Enjoy
