I consistently have issues with cobweb. in fact, it's about the only contam i ever get. wtf?!?! at what point does the mold sporulate? how the hell does it take over a casing when the casing material has NO nutrients in it?! recently a casing got cobwebbed and i took it out and set it in front of a HEPA intake and a lamp and doused it with h2o2. i left it like this for 36 hours until the casing was completely dry. I stuck the casing back in the terrarium, rehydrate wit 1:10 h2o2:h2o and bammo, the whole casing was immediately alive with cobweb. i can't fucking kill this shit and it really sucks to go through all the steps of getting a nice colonized casing and watch it go to shit thanks to cobweb.
Cobweb is a bitch. You are probably getting it from somewhere else. Once you have it, you must clean everything that touches your terrerium. If you mist, then get a new mist bottle. If you have a humidifier, clean all the parts that get wet, including the tubing, with bleach water. Let everything soak for several hours, and then rinse. The sides of your containers, the trays, the perlite, anything and everything.
When I couldn't get rid of it, I finally figured out that it was growing inside my plumbing between the terrerium and the humdifier. I ended up having to soak everything in bleach between each flush to finally beat it down. Don't bother trying to salvage anything at this point. You already have seen the results. Get rid of it all and clean clean clean until you can't clean anymore... then clean some more.
Also be careful that you aren't tracking it in from elsewhere... such as your bathroom shower or sink. You might also want to invest in an air filter for the room you are growing it... it will help somewhat.
Good luck and don't give up!!!
