    How did you sterilize plastic containers?

    Pressure cooker on lowest heat from stovetop, I made the mistake of setting the heat too high with my first ones and they melted but if the containers are polypropylene they can withstand it low heat. I pressure cooked for 15 minutes.

    Hopefully there no contamination some species will take more than a month to look green but others very fast like terrestrial orchids. All the best.

    I've seen on youtube people using microwave to sterilize microwavable plastic containers.

    How do you create the sterile working environment?
