I found green mold in the fruiting chamber. what do I do?
    #2140637 - 11/27/03 06:53 PM (13 years, 17 days ago)

I have 8 cakes in the fruiting chamber right now. Four are on their second flush. Four were just birthed a few days ago.
Today I noticed that there was some green mold on the top of one of the new cakes. It had no sign of contam. before this. I removed the bad cake shot a little lysol on the spot were the bad cake was sitting. then I checked the rest of the cakes the best I could without moving them alot.
I have never had contaminants get into my fruiting chamber before. What should I do? What are my chances of stoping this before it spreads? Should I just throw them all away and start fresh?

I tried to leave my signature but it didn't work...
By the way... Does anybody know how to get sharpie markers off of a computer screen?

first thing to do is isolate this cake so by removing it from the terrarium, you did well. Most of the time, I don't bother fighting contam on a cake so I throw it out. You could still try to cut a large piece around the infected part and fruit it in a separate mini terrarium.

lil advice : don't spray some lysol inside the terrarium. it is known to cause some mutations on fruits, such as rosecombs. it's not that bad but hey, you want pretty fruits don't you?

if you see some more cakes contaminate and you suspect your terrarium to be holding some mold spores, just finish your grow the best you can and then wash everything with bleach.

mixing hydrogen peroxide into your spraying water will help hold back moulds w/o harming the shrooms

Do all the above and pray to the mushroom gods. If what you found was contamination it's Trichoderma. If you caught it early enough on you could be fine, but it is a really good mushroom pathogen.

The H2O2 might work, but I would think it might be better to lower the pH by using dilute bleach or sodium bicarb in the misting water. I haven't had problems with cakes, though, so I'm not speaking from experience, but Trichoderma is somewhat intolerant to high pH's.... The H2O2 could raise the pH a bit, but it's primarily an oxidizer.

After cutting away the infected area put some water/perozide solution on the infected area and then a couple shakes of salt.  Salt has been reported to stop trich in its tracks :smile:
