cobweb mold?
    #6177917 - 10/17/06 11:31 AM (7 years, 9 months ago)

I was just wondering what causes cob web mold. I was told that too much humidity( which is what mushrooms need) and not enough air exchange. now i got the mold 2 times, and once just tring to dry out some Hpoo layed out on a piece of wood outdoors. does this stuff come from skin particles or somthing. theres got to be a source, and the 2 resons above might trigger it. but how do i avoid it all together? i even used lime to raise Ph which is also a factor. this stuff just follows me around. wierd. any help on this would be awsome, as this is the only reason why i fail.

Mold spores cause cobweb mold. Higher humidity and temperatures may accellerate its growth rate, I think you need to look at your sterility procedures. Mold spores can be found everywhere.

You may want to invest in a glove box, or better, build one yourself.

I'm pretty darn steril when i do things. even when i hear that ones my jars are fully inoculated, things don't need to be as strile, i still use a half can of lysol in a small room to spawn and case. and anything i use or touch i use alcohol or bleach. even when i fan i do it quick. but there seems to be a common thread here it only pops up at the same time my pins are comming up. anytime before that things are fine. usally 3 days after i start the pinnig process is when it starts. give or take a day. i'm bigging to wander if it's our water or somthing in the plastic that my tub is made of. even though i use a to of bleach just before i put anything in there. thanx.

Ah, you know what i just thought of that could be the culprit. i have black duct tape rapped around the inside of my tub, because it's black, and heard that if the inside is black the shrooms don't grow crooked from the light bouncing around and the shrooms not knowing which way to grow. but the tape even after i wash it might be harboring spores that grow anyware it can get behind the tape while wet. maybe just maybe.

Cobweb rarely spreads from spores-it spreads from mycelial fragments that are released into the air.

Cobweb requires stale, still air. Moving, fresh air is toxic to cobweb and it won't grow if you have proper air exchange even if the mycelial fragments land on your casing layer.

The above said, cobweb is super easy to get rid of. It's killed by spraying with 3% peroxide, which melts it on contact.

Do what RR said. I had cobweb when I cased the spawn I have in my signature. I put the container near the exhaust fan of my computer since it was so warm during a weird cold spell in September.

I got cobweb two days after doing that and hosed those bitches down with h2o2 and they melted like the wicked witch and never showed up again.. ever.

For times when you can't fan a terrarium, you can stick a pencil or similar under a corner of the lid to hold it open. Just allow for air exchange and cobweb and other molds are easier to control.

Cobweb is not a failure. It's super easy to kill with peroxide.
