attack of the green death! forstalled? (i hope)
    #1565116 - 05/21/03 08:51 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

in my inspection of some colonizing containers (go read my grow log) I happened to notice 3 small specs of green mold nastyness on the surface clinging to some cracked wheat in the WBS. thinking. ruhroh, took a spoon, sterilized it, and scooped out the affected portion removing a good 1/2" around it ensuring that no green nasties remained. then misted the surface with a *Very* dilute h2o h2o2 solution.

coments concerns?

i'd apreciate your thoughts.

You did that on open air , no glove box ? Well, only time will tell.
Green on grain is hard to control as the substrate tends to be more adequate to air flux, thus it carries the spores much faster than BRF.
I think you should do things by the book, working with grain the right way can be difficult to learn. I believe microwaving grain is not as effective as PCing, i'm used to work with the microwave but only for sterilizing casing layers or dung which then gets in contact with mycelium, spores can be pain to germinate if the right conditions aren't met.
I took a look at the grow log (please, next time provide a link :smile: ), you should be worried if the moisture keeps builting up at the bottom, hmmmm ... do they smell or anything ?
