Pcing verm problem
    #762179 - 07/20/02 02:02 PM (15 years, 11 months ago)

Ok, well I pc'd some verm up yesterday so that I could sterilze it just to be on the safe side, along with some coco-coir. Well when I was going to make my casing just now, I opened up the verm jar(quart jars) and it smelled like it had bacterial contam? WTF could have happened. I have no idea how it could have gotten bacterial contam. I pc'd for 1 hour at 15 psi. The coco coir smelled fine its just the two verm jars. I wanted to sterilize the verm b/c last time I got green mold just on the verm, bottom layer. Should I pc it again? I wetted the verm pretty good before and then squeezed as much water out as I could then put that into the jars. Can I just bake it to dry it out and pc again, or should I just bake it?

Did you leave the jars in the Pcooker overnight to cool? ....its kinda hard to answer this question because if you just cooked the stuff it should be fine. Id just buy a new bag of verm to answer the second part....wait for more replys though, they might know

I was thinking I put to much water, but I squeezed most of the water out, then I put that into the jars. It might be b/c I pc'd it yesterday, and left it over night and then tried to use it today. I am baking it in the oven right now. Maby this will dry it up again so I can use it later. I would buy some more verm, but I dont even have 5 bucks to my name Dam phone bills. I just made the casing out of straight coco coir so i'll pick me up a bag next week when I get some more money. I just wanted to mix in the verm with coco so it could stay somewhat moist, but i'll just have to do more misting.
Oh yea, birdseed breaks up so much easier than those dam verm/brf cakes. Only took me like a min to break up 4 jars instead of like 10 min with brf cakes.

i usually just mix it and bake it covered with foil(at 300 for a 1/2 hr) i always check moisture content before and after(I use spring water). Brief rivulettes of water should be seen between fingers when squeezed. This seems to be perfect for me. Try it and you'll understand when you see it. Also moisture content stays the same even when baking if covered tightly with foil. But always check just for GP

contams on verm? pah!
verm by itself is pretty much impossible to contam.
vermiculite may contain a few trace elements and all, but there's no carbohydrate or protein in verm AT ALL.
If anyone makes a verm casing and the verm appears to get contaminated you can be 99% sure the contam originated in the substrate and just spread out through the verm.
so there
