DEFINATELY!!!!!!! If anyone is paying attention, this is what my contam looked like also.

see the topic: opinions please. . .

Hey try what I did, scrape it off or cut it out of the casing. Maybe it will help

D'oh... thats what I thought.. blue/green mold.

I thought it is dangerous to cut out contam and try to save the rest, because you don't know where it actually is. btw, there is some creeping up on the other side of the casing as well :frown:

baahhh... oh well.. time to start again..

The contam showed up when I started fanning the casing and trying to get pinning. What is a safer method of air transfer? aquarium pump? (how is it used) beside you would still need to spray to keep moist.

this is just a tupperware container with saran wrap, not in a huge terrainium or anything.

Anybody? :smile:

Looks like trichoderma. Try lowering the moisture level of your casing. Also, the air pump will exchange gasses. You may opt to put the pump in a sealed tupperware container with a dust-mask filter. Spray the filter with Lysol every cuople days. There is a tek for this here at the Shroomery somewhere. It might be in the misc documents. I'm not sure. It does work, though.
