Condensation causing contam?
    #1450144 - 04/11/03 04:43 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hello all,
I am currently cultivating a grow kit (I will eventually try the Tek) and I am using a propagator with 2cm of water on the bottom for humidity. I added a small amount of bleach to the water to keep it sterile and I mean small! However, Many times when I have been examining the kit, I've noticed condensation droplets falling onto the vermic and mycelium. Today I even witnessed a drop make a direct hit on my biggest 'shroom!! :shocked:
Will this cause any harm?
Thank you for taking the time to read and (hopefully) reply!  :grin:

Well i'd say if you haven't seen any contams yet and you've alreayd got shrooms you should be fine, sometimes too much humidity will cause some contams

What i'd be worry about is eating something that has been in contact with bleach. I don't know how much you put in there but evn a little would worry me. It is a poison and a nasty one at that.

If someone more learned in the ways of how bleach and mushrooms react to one another would care to add something it be a great help here.

There are no worries if it is condensation.
I use a weak water/bleach solution for the perlite and i see no problem at all. Treating contams with water/bleach dunk is a different story, although i believe hippie3 bleach tek is good to fight contams, i wouldn't use it in cellulose based substrates such as straw or wood based, as the reaction causes the release of some toxins.
