Big contam increase
    #1471339 - 04/18/03 09:08 PM (18 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, a friend of a friends was saying that he grows some type of mushrooms and that he was getting a lot of problems with contams lately. He thinks it may be one of two things.
1. Instead of nuking poo he baked it at 175 for an hour and a half
2. Spring has arrived and there is all kinds of shit in the air.
His/her main contam problem was green mold.
thanks for any input

are we talking about your spawn jars or your casings?

are they going green before they get to 100% or after
they've flushed once or twice?

This is known as 'dry heat sterilization'. The times required for dry heat sterilization vs steam sterilization can be quadruple. Also, as the name implies, the substrate will dry out during sterilization. You must use sterile water to rehydrate the substrate or you will risk contamination.
