Re: When using h202, does it kill your cakes?

h202 solution is hydrogen peroxide and water correct?

Correct: H2o2 can be mixed with water (I even use it straight) and it works well against fighting contaminates.

the purpose is to kill any harmfuls contams, but won't it kill any organisms that are touching it?

Contaminates and organisims kind of go hand and hand... I think I know what you're trying to say though, so NO it won't be harmful.

By this I mean when you place damp perlite on the bottom of your terranium soaked with H202 solution, would this infact kill any life on the cakes?

It will kill harmful contaminates like cobweb mold. After I birth cakes, I give them a light misting of H2o2. I've never had any problems while using H2o2. It will not hurt or harm the mushrooms:-)

but... If the cobweb mold is already growing.. then won't the cobweb just change the h202 to h20 and keep on growin?

H2O2 kills spores but not mycelium, unless you drown the mycelium in it. So when you use it, it will kill all of the contams trying to get a foothold on perlite. the mushrooms are in the mycelium stage so they are unaffected, while the spores from the bacteria and other molds die.

And the great thing about hydrogen peroxide is, in the process of killing them, it just turns into water. Hydrogen peroxide is the perfect disinfectant for shrooms.

Cy Coe: I was gonna say, doesn't H2O2 just decompose into Hydrogen and and Oxygen or water and oxygen? The H2O2 you buy at stores is 3% H2O2, the rest H2o,...so when you dilute that further it is a really weak solution. Also, all the teks say to just add some (a small amount) to the perlite, not use it in place of water.
