When spraying peroxide on the casing, is it suppose to...
    #2159083 - 12/04/03 08:30 PM (13 years, 8 days ago)

My amoeba think it's having contam problems. So it just took off all the aborts and cleaned up the coir. It just doused the casing in 50/50 water and peroxide. Is it suppose to bubble a lot when its sprayed on. It know its a lot stronger than the general 10:1 mixture, but it just wanted to kill off any contams. Is that a bad sign with all that bubbling?

Yes -- bubbling means you are oxidizing the whole top of the casing. That is too much peroxide.

I don't know what will happen, but that isn't good.

Yes, micro is correct - you might want to try using a much more diluted solution of hydrogen peroxide and water, so that problem cannot occur again.

The bubbling indicates that something is breaking down the peroxide. That could be the casing material itself, bacteria, or something else. The point is that you don't really know.

My experience with hydrogen peroxide is that it's great to clean up mycelium syringes of bacteria and contamination spores if there isn't an apparent problem to begin with. But it really doesn't work in the long haul for getting rid of any contamination once it's gotten a hold of a casing and is obvious. For example, I've poured it all over green mold on a casing, but the green mold always returns in a couple days. It just doesn't work for problems once they've reached the macroscopic (i.e. you can see it) level.

You have to first remove the contamed part and then clean the left area with proxide because you want to kill the potential bacteria in the healthy seen casing,the bacteria in the healthy part is not seen till it matures in a few days so try with this again ...I was always succesfull also in grain jars.(may be luck)
