casing contamination
    #1236242 - 01/21/03 10:49 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

my friend's casing is colonizing nicely, but there are some suspect spots which he believes are cobweb mold... it's not "taking the surface" like wildfire, as some members of this forum said it might ... but it still seems oddly gray compared with the bright white mycelium poking through the top surface. What should he do?

Is it still okay to fruit it with some contam spots, can they be amputated?

hehehe

wellll i believe the contam may be coming from one or more contaminated cakes beneath the casing layer!! heeeheee

so, I should birth this thing in order to get rid of the contams? Currently I have a layer of saran wrap over the top, keeping it humid in there
in order to initiate pinning, should I just start giving it light and decrease temps a bit? Or would it be beneficial to birth it into a chamber with perlite.

It is where you dont put your casings into a fruiting chamber but put a layer of plastic wrap on top of it that you have misted. Dont seal it around but just palce it on top. CrabbyAss invented it I think.
