Cold shocked casing and now there are thin white hairs.HELP
    #1364455 - 03/11/03 03:00 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hey all.. a friend of mine made a 50/50 (Verm/Peatmoss) casing.. it's his first.. anyway.. he put it in the incubator.. untill he could see mycelium in the cracks.. so he took it and put it in his refridgerator overnight to cold shock it.. anyway.. when he took it out.. he noticed some thin white hair looking things in one of the corners.. is it contaminated??? he has it in the terrarium with some of his cakes.. should he take it out? :frown:  Thanks for all your help.

Well he got paranoid and had his girlfriend remove it... and within a couple of hours.. she told him that the *fuzz* just disappeared.. could this have been something that froze in the refridgerator??? i have no clue what to think about this.. i've been reading around and people are saying that white cottony fuzz is good?? what should i tell me friend??? :frown:

I know the search button is broken, but there's still a trillion new threads about WHITE FUZZ. Just browse around a little, and don't get so paranoid :laugh:

I'm sorry.. it's my friends first grow.. so is it safe to put the casing back in the terrarium? he has it out in his room right now.. just misting the casing layer when needed... Thanks.

This is kinda where a fellow I know is at with some of his casings.

They're whiter than some of the cobweb pics he's seen, but seem fluffier than he expected mycellium to be. When sprayed with h20/h202, they kinda 'melted', but not completely disappeared, just kinda collapsed the way your hair does when it gets wet.

So if fluffy mycellium is sprayed, is this normal, or a sure-fire sign of cobweb?
