    There is really no need to boil. The only time I could think that anybody needs
    To sterilize media would be for seedings, but ive germinated countless times
    On dirty, non nuked soil.

    And I can only immagine the horrendous smell of baked/boiled sphagnum...

    Curtis, It's SPHAGNUM Pronounced SFAGNUM or SFAGNEM. Listen to it here sphagnum noun - Pronunciation | Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com

    Fredg, I know you're from the UK and while it may be pronounced sfagnum in your country, in America it's pronounced spagnum. I don't know if you watch any American t.v. shows, but there are lots of words like this. T.v. and Tele are good examples.

    I think he's pointing out that you're spelling it wrong (sphagnum, not spagnum), and I don't think the spelling is a regional thing.

    The point is Curtis, if you pronounced the word correctly the spelling becomes quite easy.
