Any ideas on curing inky caps
    #1809029 - 08/13/03 01:08 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

If there is two much free amonia in the fertilizer is their anyway to counter act that.  And can good caps ever be grown from inky caps.  I mean if you transfered them to a good substrate could they :confused: eventually become good.

Inky caps are a species. The 'contamination' isn't effecting your mushrooms. It's a whole other species, which has taken over the substrate. So no.. you can't 'cure it'. You can however pasteurize it and spawn it with a species you choose. No guarantee on success though, if it's heavily sporulated.

If you have a problem with inky caps infesting your casings, try adding peroxide to your substrate after pasteurizing.

Preventing them in the first place is the key. If you're composting, incomplete composting leaves residual amonia, extend phase II until it's depleted. If using manures, drying the manure thoroughly and LEACHING washes out the amonia (leaching would be a hot water bath, vs. other types of past.)

If you really meant fertilizer, then don't use the fertilizer. Use well documented substrates, they are proven and people can help you when you have problems.

Mushroom compost has been spent. It's the compost that mushrooms USED to grow on, what's left is good for plants. The burn has been sucked out of it.

Yeah, and it's usually been further composted even after the substrates been fruited. This is your problem. Inkies abound around mushroom farms, it's no surprise they get into their waste compost. I imagine the waste compost piles are probably cold piles, with no attention paid to make sure they self-heat enough to kill the contaminates.

Propper past. should kill them, but may not if the compost is heavily infected. So, just get rid of the compost, it's not helping you anyway.
