Stalled Cakes
    #2046818 - 10/27/03 10:04 AM (13 years, 4 days ago)

Hiya.  Long time since my last post but ... things have gone odd.  Any help appreciated.

3 dozen fully colonized cakes have completely stalled in their grow chambers.  I have cold shocked twice and dunked once.  Humidity and temp are all good and within optimum parameters.  This is something like my 20th season.

The only thing I've done different this time is add a little bleach to the water I poured into the perlite humidity layer.  Usually I use hydrogen peroxide but this time I went with bleach.  Stupid.  There is a definite bleachy odor to the grow chambers and more than a few of the cakes show a vague yellow colouring on their surface.

Have I killed my mycelium with bleach-tainted humidity?  :frown:

Would not have thought bleach in the air was enough (unless you have one hell of a lot of bleach), are the cakes in contact with the perlite, could they be wicking up the bleach?
