casing sterilization
    #997379 - 10/27/02 07:05 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Does a casing usually do pretty well without sterilizing the verm/potting soil?

It seems like if the mycelium is already well colonized, where would the contamination take hold?

Why are you using potting soil as a casing? There are much better alternatives out there.

It all depends on where your potting soil came from. Usually, the stuff that comes sealed in thick plastic resealable bags is pretty clean and sterile, but you can never be for sure about it. It seems like there wouldn't be much of a way for the contamination to establish itself at all in such a non-nutritive soil, but believe me that it can and will. Even if you can't sterilize at home, pastureizing is an option. It depends whether or not you want to take the risk. And yes, premixed potting soil is an okay casing to start with.
