Bleach in the terrarium?!
    #2249553 - 01/18/04 02:46 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)


Hmm, just add a little bit of bleach in the water cuz it was getting viscous. Now the inside of the terrarium has very strong bleach smell. Nothing is sitting directly in the water but I was wondering if this could be bad for the casing...

I'm too lazy to simply change the water. Any input?

.fs.

As long as this bleach water isent coming into contact with any organism cuz it will kill anything thats living. Otherwise im sure you will be fine.

i don't think that you'd have too much of a problem even if it did come in contact with any of your casings....after all there are all those people that swear by dunking their PF cakes in bleach solution and they turn out fine.

Yeah, dudes are the same way and no ill effects as of yet. Of course if you have to much bleach in there, I would be more concerned with you own health rather then the fruits. Dude over did it once on a bleach clean of one of his fruiting areas...little bit of a headache :grin:

Wow that weird. Usually bleach kills everything... ANd mushroom mold is the same as any other contamination out there basically right. So how can bleach work for killing other organisms... That just seems odd to me.

i've never tried it myself, but there are teks out there that explain on how to use a very dilute bleach solution in order to hydrate their cakes...mycelium is stronger than most bacteria i'd assume, and basideomycetes are prolly stronger than rhyzopus which is your common black pin mold.
