Green Casing
    #2208335 - 12/29/03 07:59 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

A strange thing happened to my friend's first casing today. He had a good first two flushes, producing 1 ounce dry, but then today havoc was reaked on his new casing.

The casings are stored in clear plastic rubbermaids. The casings themselves are in aluminum trays, on top of a bed of perlite. His first two casing went great, but the newest one turned all the shrooms green overnight.

They pins were growing fine, some up to 4 inches tall, but all the sudden everything was green this morning. All the pins, and all the aborts are ruined with green fungus.

He fans his fruiting chamber 3 times a day and gives it normal shroom growing light. He is at a loss and cannot figure out how this could have happened, being nothing has changed.

Perhaps the perlite got old and induced the mold? Something else? Any help or suggestions on how this could have happened would be appreciated.

He did spray with H2o2 everyday, thats why he's curious as to what happened. He doesn't want this to happen again, thats why he's trying to see if any of you know.

the bitch got old, it's not uncommon for a casing to get the funk after it puts out a few flushes, the mycellium gets weaker ect.

Jtryp is right, sometimes after a few flushes they just get the funk, it could be to much moisture but more than likely it's just contams on a weak casing or cake. be happy you got a couple good flushes and knock up some more jars  :smile:

DO NOT EAT INFECTED SHROOMS! if they have indeed surcomed to green mold. Try changing the perlite every once in a while and use a H2o2 soulution to spray down the perlite for humidity. Now that your grow chamber has been infected, remove all casings not ifected, and throughly clean and disinfect the grow chamber and the area you keep it in.
