I have to find the website.
I got three bags for under $100.00, shipping was about $20.00 though, for me it seemed like a good deal for that much substrate. I still have two bags :^)
Setting up another rack this week and I'm putting it to good use!
Cook it. Smell goes away. Will be fine, the only bacteria you'll introduce will be ones on your hands/plants and in water. Cleaner environment, though still not sterile.
If you start seeing fungus/black mold or bugs watch out, you didn't cook it long enough!
