Tinge of green...
    #1728647 - 07/18/03 09:25 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I was going to case my substrate today for my two batches of substrate and noticed a slight bit of the dreaded green on one and a larger chunk on the other.

The one with the slight bit i pulled it off, and put a little bit of lysol on it. Sprayed the area with Hydrogen Perox and water. Then cased it.

The one with more, I ripped out a major chunk. Sprayed with lysol (the confined area) and then sprayed the HP mix sorta liberally in the case.

The area which had a good chunk taken out I filled with the casing material. A nice 40 ver-50 peat-10 coco/ oystershell mix. Calcium Carbonate was mixed into the casing and I put sprinkled some on top of the casing as well. Since the mycelium was covered nicely with the casing I also lightly misted in the case with Lysol (since it shouldn't get into the substrate through the casing.. I believe it will go inert by the time anything grows up.

What are the chances that I got it all ;-)
The one with very slight green I think will be ok. The substrate was well (100% filled with mycelium) filled and I don't think the green got into it. The other was about 90% filled. I took most of that extra out since I thought the more the better chance of getting the contamination out.
In what I pulled out it wasn't into the center of the straw. Just on the surface.

Does mycelium recover pretty well generally from abuse or does it really set it back?

Well I don't want to trash it all so I will wait 4-5 days and see if the casing develops properly.

In case anyone remembers my other post:

where i ripped half the stuff out and dumped the rest into a small rubbermaid container.. it produced 4 flushes.

Im hoping something is salvaged. There was no evil smell or anything eminating.. I think it had just started to develop.

Only time will tell man. If you ever find green coming up again toss the whole thing.
