Water droplets on casing mycelium
    #1320161 - 02/19/03 06:13 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

A friend of a friend has a casing he is trying to fruit. He has it in a small bread pan with plastic wrap over it and he fans it 3 times a day and lightly mist with h2o2/h2o2 every other day or so(paranoid about contams). Well today he noticed there were some water droplets on the mycelium is this bad? Also is lightly misting with h2o2/h2o mix every now and then a good idea?

I don't think the mix is good to spray on a daily basis... only if you SEE contams... otherwise you should just use some distilled water! That's what I thought anyways!

Some people chose to mist with ONLY a  peroxide. h2o spray... not a strong concentration however. I have never had problem with water droplets. If you are paranoid gently dab it up with a napkin.  I must say, that although sterile practices are essential to this hobby, once the substrate and casing layer are thouroughly colonized, it is not extremely necissary to focus entirely on sterillity. From what  I understand, lack of air exchange, and too much moisture are your chief concerns on getting contams at this point. If you air the fuker out enough, dont worry... unless you know for a fact your area is extremely un sanitary, or you have other infected projects around it. I would recommend something other than saran wrap to initiate fruiting, although people have gotten it to work!  :tongue:

Get some saran quick covers, they work great. however, you should think about getting a small multigallon clear rubbermaid storage container to use as a terrarium. It's much easier to control humidity and insure proper air exchange in a more open enviroment rather than a simple plastic wrap covering the casing container. just add some perlite to the bottom of the terrarium and voila! your good as gold
