1- I plan on adding some gypsum to the Verm/Coir 60-40 sub, how much gypsum should I add to the mix and can I add the gypsum before I sterilize the Verm/Coir 60-40 sub?  2- And what stage is this jar at?  is at 100% yet?  Thank You

Sterilizing sub is not always the best.. Pasteurize is better.

Cubes are so easy. You'd be better off sterilizing.

I’ve been wondering about this, I usually do an oven pasteurization and I’m sure I go over temp and time towards the point of sterilization . Not saying I have great flushes every time but I’ve been doing well and hit nice yields imo.
