fuckin cobweb...
    #2124970 - 11/20/03 01:53 PM (13 years, 18 days ago)

I had about 5 jars that I didn't case due to lack of room and decided just to fruit them as cakes, a blanket fell on top of my pmp and fucked up the air exchange and humidity and cobweb took hold of three of them, not bad yet since I realized it before it got to bad. I was just going to toss them but decided to mist the cakes with a water/salt mixture and see if that would save them. Think that will work, or should I just toss them?

I'd give it a shot, just be sure to quarantine the infected cakes from your good one's, cross contamination = bad

Does anyone have any pictures of cobweb? I checked the contamination forum but they either don't have any pics or they're from shitty webcams.

I'm just curious as to what it looks like so I'll know what to look for in the future.

It's easy to spot, it tends to grow out, like more puffy than mycellium and you can tell a color diffrence, it's like a dirty white.

I'm thinkin the salt might dehydrated the cakes though, I kinda half assed it when I sprayed them, there were dunked and rolled and set on a lid with damp verm. I hope that keeps the moisture alright, I guess I'll see what happens...

I just got some advice from magash and auto (thanks guys) and they said to dunk in water/h2o2 to get rid of the salt, so I think I got it worked out, I should have tried h2o2 first I guess but I wanted to be sure to kill this shit.

One time I had cobweb mold on a casing and it just wouldnt go away. Finally, I just took an alcohol pad and swabbed the hell out of it. The mold died, and it didnt seem to affect the growth of the mycelium. You might try that, but it might kill a whole cake.

cobweb hates fresh air, low humidity, and light. i'd say just put those cakes on a clean sheet of aluminum foil or something and leave them out for a day or so. after that, give them a peroxide\water dunk to finish off any cobweb and rehydrate for any lost water.

cobweb is a pussy contam. you can definitely get rid of it with the proper treatments. i've had cobweb on casings that i've gotten rid of just by putting the casing outside for a day.

I heard that a solution of acetic acid(vinegar) and h2o2 is an excellent disenfectant, just try to not spray your healthy mycelium with it.
