Cough Cough... Bloody Contams
    #2259664 - 01/21/04 02:08 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Well I made my usual maintenance rounds this morning and to my surprise... a contamination in one of my bulk grows. I haven't had any since I switched to straw so I was a little surprised. Anyways, I took it out and started disecting it in hopes of saving it and everywhere I went in it, it was contaminated. What's weird is that the surface (except for a tiny patch in a corner was completely contaminate free while the entire substrate was green. I've had problems with trich before so I'm familiar with the symptoms, but this shit was crazy. It was... I guess you'd say dusty which I guess was probably spores. I've never seen anything like it. Anyone have an idea what it could have been: it was a very dark green and as I said, Dusty? And it didnt touch the coir, just the straw. Needless to say it recieved a hasty trip to the dumpster.

Tough to say;  Trich can vary in the shade of green, but Aspergillus/Penicillium can vary even more so----anything blue-green to dark-green can fall into that category, and only a microscope can tell for sure.  I don't know what to say about the 'dustiness', except that it's bad news :wink:
Good luck with the others, hope it didn't spread.

If its going to spread now it will be on the surface of your other grows. Whatch for Growth of a different shade of white on your trays. If you can spot it before it starts producing green spores it will be that much easier to get rid of. Good luck
