Using hydrogen peroxide to prevent bacterial growth in pf tek jars
    #9958951 - 03/12/09 05:20 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

I'm conducting an experiment where light yellowish small patches of mycelium are developing around areas where there is condensation. I injected 1 cc of hydrogen peroxide for each jar, so far my mycelium is starting to look whiter. But I'm wondering if anyone has ever used hydrogen peroxide before. Any good results?

I know hydrogen peroxide is useful for ridding of cob webb contamination (at least in the beginning stages) not sure how effective it is against other contams. Are you sure that yellowish stuff aren't just metabolites?

Hah, ok pot. Take some h202 straight out of the bottle and spray it on some fresh pins that don't have cobweb. Tell me how that works out for you.




Straight peroxide isn't suitable for much more than providing oxygen for solid fuel rocket boosters.  In some countries it's sold in ten to thirty percent concentrations, but in the USA, it's packaged in brown bottles and sold in drug and grocery stores at the 3% concentration that is exactly what we want for spraying cobweb mold.  The 3% solution should not be diluted further, but rather should be used right from the bottle.

Peroxide does harm mycelium.  If you spray pins with 3% peroxide and allow them to remain saturated, they will abort. If you're spraying for cobweb, be sure to avoid pins, and if you do hit the pins, fan dry them right away.

A treatment with 3% peroxide on a cobweb infestation should be repeated twice after the initial application at 12 hour intervals to prevent the cobweb from coming back.

Increase fresh air exchange.  Cobweb rarely forms when there is sufficient fresh air.
