wonderin if i should worry?
    #1752819 - 07/27/03 01:26 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

recently my cakes were all covered in mycelium. i let them sit an extra few days just to make sure that everything was covered. When I took the lids off I noticed that the mycelium spread to the layer of dry verm on the top. I asked about how to put the cakes onto the perlite (tinfoil post) and it was recommended to put some H2O2 on the layer of dry verm. Since it was covered I added a small layer of dry verm (about the cap level of a 1/2 pint ball jar)and dampened it with the peroxide. Then I put the cake on it and placed it in my poor mans pod (thanks magash). Should I worry about the peroxide drying out the cake? I have the bubblers and the air pump set up, so the case has a rather high humidity and such. So any suggested changes? Worry? Thanks

no need to worry...you can think of hydrogen peroxide as a water molecule with an extra oxygen atom attached to it...when that extra atom breaks off h2o2 becomes h2o...

Just to let you know, the PF TEK states that there will be some wispy mycelium in that top layer. I believe that it says not to worry about that, just scrape off most of the verm layer. Don't take this to be absolute as I'm a begginer myself! Happy Shroomin!!

How many times do I have to tell you, I was running through the woods and tripped on some mushrooms!!! Well, at least I'm not lying.:crazy:

Yeah. You can scrape that off with no problem. Heck, SWIM noticed some really active mycelium growing through the tyvek filters he used when he went to birth the last cakes he birthed...%)
