help me fight green
    #1426693 - 04/03/03 05:45 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

i am new at this and have been searching the forums for quite some time.. my first attempt at growing was brown rice flower and vermiculite at a temperature of 85 degree. i lost 10 of twelve jars to green mold located at the top of the jar and moving down. my second is the same conditions with 8 gone already... someone give me something that may help fight green pleese, this is pretty crappy.

pressure cook at 15 psi for one hour? Hydrogen Peroxide with water? Salt?

Wash your hands before innoculating. Gloves?

Look in the FAQ at the top of the page.

PROPER HAND WASHING PROCEDURE

HAND WASHING: PROTECTS HEALTH AND PREVENTS DISEASE


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Hand washing is the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection." -U.S. Center for Disease Control






Remember to Wash Hands
Use warm running water and soap.





1. Wet
Wet hands first






3. Soap/Lather
Lather well beyond wrist.






5. Rinse
Thoroughly rinse with clean water. Be sure not to touch side of sink.




WHEN SHOULD HANDS BE WASHED?



* After touching ears, nose,mouth, hair.
* Any contact with infected or otherwise unsanitary areas of the body.
* After use of handkerchief or tissue.
* Hand contact with unclean equipment or work surfaces.
* Hand contact with soiled clothing, shop rags, or any other material that is soiled.
* Handling raw food - partially cooked meat or poultry.
* Handling money.
* Eating
* After using the restroom.

As frequent as hands are
thought to need it.

2. Soap
Use soap preferably anti-bacterial.




4. Wash

Work all surfaces thoroughly including wrists, palms, back of hands, fingers, and under fingernails - Rub hands together for at least 15-20 seconds.



6. Dry

Dry hands completely use towel to turn off water and protect hands from resoiling.





Hand Washing Facts:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fact #1 68% of the population washes their hands after using the restroom.
Fact #2 Nosocomial infection (infections caught while in health care facilities) contribute to 100,000 deaths annually. One of the major reasons is the breakdown of the hand washings.
Fact #3 Food poisoning cause 9,000 deaths annually. The key to food protection is hand washing!

I boiled both sets for an hour. i am actually asking specifically about green mold in hopes that someone has had the same problem before. i think the salt is only for mold on caseings being that you shouldnt open the jars. maby if i mixed a small amount of salt in the layer of strait vermiculite at the top it might help? anyone have an idea?

Invest in a pressure cooker and the green will go away.

it would help if you told us at what point in the growth stage it was getting infected with the green. Is it always starting at the top? Whatever you can.

This info will help us determine the cause of your green mold and help us to advise you on what you need to do to get rid of it.

the jars are usually anywhere from 9- 15 days into colinaization. i never see green at the bottom of the jar, only at the top and then when i dump them i see that the middle top is all green as well. maby if i put some spores in the center instead of just at the side it would colonize and fight off the green before it becomes infected.. but then again i dont really know. any thoughts?

I am growing for the first time right now, also using jars. Two of my jars of the original 12 have fallen to brown mold, one jar cracked, but the remaining jars seem to be almost fully colonized, none of them having signs of green mold. I think I used the same technique as you, boiling, so I don't know where the difference is. You did mix water along with the verm and the brf right? Also, how did you protect the jars? I just left a layer of dry vermiculate on the top of the cakes to keep contaminants out.
