Cob web? (good pictures)
    #14469941 - 05/17/11 10:44 PM (10 years, 8 months ago)

Coffe/coir/verm monotub, 4 2-inch holes stuffed with polyfil.



All of the tub looks like this, is that cob web?

Also, I sprayed a corner of the monotub with 3% H202 and this is what it looked like afterwards, it sizzled and it produced some yellow liquid that I wiped up with a tissue.




I have my bottle of H202 guns drawn at the surface of this monotub. :guns:
This is the furthers I've gotten in about a year so I'm not gonna let some cob web stop me!

looks cobweb to me. something fizzling when sprayed with H2O2 just means it's organic, but if it reduced greatly in volume then it def. is cobweb.

that top left corner surely looks cottony, hope you can fight it back successfully

Yeah it didn't smell very mushroomy, didn't smell rotton though like bacteria or trich.
I sprayed the whole surface down with H202, all the fluffy top strands instantly melted away.  :minigun:  I then dabbed it up with tissues. I think I have all the indicators to confirm it's cob web. There's still plenty of healthy looking mycelia left because the h202 didn't melt it away.
So I'm gonna take the polyfil out of two of the holes to increase air flow which I've been told fights cob web.

Do you guys think I will need to spray it again?
I know the H202 doesn't kill the mycelia, but it damages it. How long will it take for it to recover? How long until I see fruits? :um:

Thank you.

Couldn't fight it, took out my whole monotub. :sad:
I think I'm gonna break the record for most failed grows in a row.

Why didn't you simply spray peroxide three times at 12 hour intervals, as has been recommended for the last decade?  Cobweb mold is the easiest thing to prevent, and even easier to get rid of.

In addition, you should NEVER have exposed grains on the surface.  That's just begging for mold.

Yeah I did spray it a few times with peroxide, it just refused to go away.


Oh, well now I know. Some teks call for grains on the top and some don't.

Thanks RR

Either way my grows have been getting massacred lately.
