hydrogen peroxide on casing
    #5752874 - 06/15/06 11:24 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hello everyone, I believe I see cobweb mold on my casing, which is beginning to pin. I am just wondering if H2O2 solution is safe to spray on the whole casing. Can it damage mycelium or mushroom formation?

Peroxide can cause minor damage, but cobweb will totally destroy it if not contained. Spray a small section of what you suspect is cobweb with 3% peroxide straight from the bottle. If it melts and disappears on contact, it was cobweb(mushroom mycelium might foam up a bit, but won't disappear). If it was cobweb, you then need to spray down the whole casing layer because cobweb spreads by breaking off tiny mycelial fibers and releasing them to the air currents. You'll need to spray the whole thing to contain the mold. After spraying, you need to air it out by fanning well until the peroxide is dry. You can follow that a few minutes later with a plain water mist and again fan well afterward.

Peroxide has been the wonder ingredient for me for cobweb and any time green basterds that show up... they melt away instead of totally taking over. I use it to mist the casing BEFORE pinning and BETWEEN flushes as well. In fact, the only spraybottle I have has 30 percent peroxide mixed with 70 percent water.
