Electric "XP" Peat Sterilizers are designed for use with long fiber materials such as unmilled Sphagnum moss. Orchid growers often select this model for it's extra wide openings needed for bulky materials and reduction in labor required to load and unload. Heater tubes are arranged to supply even heat. 

Control weeds, pests, and pathogens safely, efficiently, and chemical-free in your soil or finished compost.  The sterilizer is filled to the top of the container and then the unit is plugged in. The thermostat is then set to the correct pasteurizing temperature. The indicator light will glow until the batch is done and the sterilizer automatically shuts off.  After the light goes off, wait 15 minutes then pick up the unit and the pasteurized or sterilized soil will drop out the bottom. Next, beneficial amendments and supplements may be added for customized growing mixes.

Along with using an excellent quality pasteurized growing mix, sterilizing your containers and tools is another important step. Seed flats, pots, trays, and tools should be thoroughly washed and disinfected. Rinse and allow to dry before using again. 

 *Control the quality of your growing mixes, minimize your exposure to toxic chemicals, and include this important first step in propagating strong, healthy plants. Successful growers around the world have used Pro-Grow Sterilizers.
