Title: storing 50/50 mix
Post by: moorhS on January 03, 2010, 10:25:52 AM
I'm sure it would probably be OK but figured u guys would know for sure... Can I keep sterilized 50/50 peat/verm in a container and close up that container real good and store it to use with my casings... every time I patch I'm having to make up new mix so just curious thanks:)

I had some that I stored in mason jars for a couple of months. It got contammed, or at least the trays I used it on turned green pretty quick. I would say if you have not used it in a couple of weeks you should nuke it in the microwave just to be sure. My 2 cents. :angry:

Just pressure cook your mix again, when youre ready to use it!

I usually make a large batch and store it dry until I need it, then I'll add water and nuke the premixed casing.
