some blind kid named Yuri has a batch of 10 cakes that are all pinning and covered with primadora. just this morning, the blind kids caregiver noticed a very small spot of trichoderma about the size of an eraser on a pencil (1cm x 1cm). the surrounding area is starting to get that light green tinge to it. none of the other cakes show any signs of contam and all cakes are healthy except for this.
his dilemna is this; should he treat the contam ASAP before it spreads or wait another few days until harvest, then treat the spot. and how should he treat this tiny spot (salt, perox., surgery)
I would cut out the peice of contam...soak the cake in some h2o/h2o2 then when you take it out add some salt too the wound...if that dosen't work chuck it...and keep it isolated don't mix up the cake with others if your planning too case
the blind kid took a sterile dropper and put several drops of pure peroxide on the infected area. two days later, the green spot of trich has disappeared and been replaced by healthy mycelium. i was very surpised this worked so well.
