Crap... cobweb
    #2005884 - 10/13/03 06:45 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Ok , so the past few days I've been wondering if I have cobweb or not. Well today I checked , and was happy to see the first pins appearing. However , that excitement quickly backfired when I realizerd the fine greyish strands appearing.

So, im 90% sure of cobweb. I mixed H202 (1:10 ratio) and lightly misted the casings. Hopefully this will work. Any other advice,... sucess stories with H202?

Thanks.

I've heard people having luck fighting cobweb with the salt tek. See the sticky post about fighting green with salt.
Also, cobweb is not harmful to humans, so i would save the ones growing far from the contamination. Toss anything that looks contaminated !
You may also replace the top layer with a new sterilized one, just scrape the one you have with a sterile tool, mist a little with h2o:h2o2 solution, put the new one, mist again and wait.

Don't know if that's cobweb. I don't think it is. But if it spreads like wildfire, then it is.

Try a little peroxide, which might stunt your myc for a bit, but will do no permanent harm.

Looks like your mushies could use a little more air exchange, BTW.

The pic is blurry, so it's hard to tell but anyway, i also don't think it's cobweb.
Btw, you should follow Ben_Steins advice.
