cobweb mold
    #1585026 - 05/28/03 02:46 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

One of my casings obviously was a bit too moist and it started growing cobweb mold. I left the container open for a couple of hours and let it dry out a bit. I was just curious if anyone knew about the molds' life cycle...meaning, if it dries out is it dead? Will it go away? Or will the Mycelium just colonize right over it? I've never experienced this before and could use some feedback. Thanks in advance.

Although you can fight cobweb mould giving air to the casing, the truth is you need to remove your casing layer some cms deep if you don't want it to come back anymore in the future, the contaminant offspring is ready to kick in as soon you provide a moist environment.
Another good therapy should be spraying some h2o2:h2o solution for a couple of days.

One last little thing...H2o2 will not harm the mycelium?

A 1:10 H2O2:water solution is relatively weak to harm mycelium but may prevent it from pinning. Stronger solutions can harm it though.
