    #11317388 - 10/25/09 11:47 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

my cakes got the green mold and i tossed them, but lately in mold threads ive been reading that any amount of trich or green mold leaves millions of spores and kinda ruins the environment its in forever . . so whats the deal, toss it out and start fresh? ive been thinking of making the move to monotubs anyhow

You don't have to make a new fruiting chamber.  If it's a real mess, like badman said, just clean it down a bit.  The focus of a fc isn't sterility anyway.  If you provide proper FAE, and have buffered your casings, you usually don't have to worry about the inevitable contaminant spores it's going to come in to contact with.

just dump out the perlite & rinse it real good nuke it or bake it

clean FC with bleach or lysol get a hepa type air purifier for your room and clean everything in the room where the trich was present...

trich spores are every where the best you can do is try to reduce them by regular cleaning.

Just wash it with soap and water.  You can bake the perlite and then re-moisten, or boil it in a large pot.

Failure to toss out moldy substrates make it hard for future sterile work, not fruiting.
