casings attacked by cobweb
    #11259554 - 10/16/09 02:05 PM (8 years, 2 days ago)

So it was my first time making monotubs, and I think that insufficient FAE led to them all being cobwebbed :eek:

I've misted heavily every couple of hours with peroxide and taken the polyfil out to increase airflow. This killed most of the cobweb, but I'm not sure if its all gone since I'm still a newb.

Do these look healthy to you guys ?

one without verm on top:

heres what they looked like before the contamination:


Any advice or suggestions ? I'd really like some mushrooms

If it comes back hit it up again. look on the bottle of peroxide if its 3% use it straight don't dilute it.

It looks fine to me, cobweb will jump across the surface rapidly.

Fuzzy mycelium is OKAY. Search around to find the difference between fuzzy mycelium and cobweb.


here's a GREAT link:

I do not see any cobweb there, I do see sign of metabolites, maybe due to poor FAE.

Second photo looks like a mushroom starting.

You should be fine, cobweb is much grayer than that and the mycelium of cobweb really does look like cobweb.  I

There's no cobweb left, I managed to get it all with peroxide.

Neither tub seems to be recovering well though, and pins have stalled

I see hyphal knots forming in the first picture. Whenever I do monotubs, I try to make sure they stay at least a foot off the ground - that's where the vast majority of your contaminants exist. I also try to keep a fan running in the room they're in.

Update

One casing seems to have gone sterile, but the other is producing some fruits around the tub edges:


The mushrooms are growing pretty slowly, it took about 5 days for them to get that size.  Do you think they'll grow to be normal size or will I harvest a handful of pygmies ?
