blue green mold on my substrate
    #11955 - 04/10/00 08:14 PM (22 years, 4 months ago)

Can anyone tell me if the bluish green mold on my substrate is harmful. I would imagine it is but how do I destroy it if it is?

If it is blue green mold it is probably penecillium or aspergillis. Both are nasty. Avoid breathing around it because if it is Aspergillis it can cause a potentially fatal lung disease. Don't mess with it. Just ditch it and start over

Your substrate is fucked. There is no way to save it. Dispose of the whole thing in a sealed plastic bag and throw it in your outdoor garbage. Wear a painter's mask or some sort of nose/mouth protection when handling. Start over using more sterile technique. Sorry, man. That sucks.

woah. i really dont think you need to take it that seriously. if you cut it out and spray w/ a diluted h2o2 soulution you could be just fine.
is this on your casing or in a jar or what exactly do you mean by "on my substrate"?
if its in a jar you should probably throw it out. clean out the jar so the spores dont spread. if its on the casing then cut it out an inch or so around and deeper than the mold. spray with h2o2 solution and add more casing soil to the spot. do this for mold on a cake to, although i think you have better luck w/ a casing. make sure your casing gets plenty of air exchange. a lack of air exchange is probably why you got the mold in the first place.

Before you destroy it....

How far along is your substrate? Sometimes, if your mycelum (I cannot spell) is doing well, and there is a foriegn mold, the mycelum can kill it off, and you won't have to ditch it. If it's JUST mold, or a lot more mold, then you have to start over.

Does it look anything like that? Also you didn't give us enough information like if the mycelium is still spreading, or if you've already had a flush. For those of you who think that it's contaminated, it's not. This cake has already had 2 flushes, and now it's starting on the 3rd. The cake just got uglier as the flushes progess.
