Is it Bruising or Contams?
    #2442092 - 03/17/04 07:03 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I think i may have been upset for nothing yesterday. I was sure green mold had attacked my fruiting cake. So i sprayed it with h202 and read to wipe it with a h202 or water q-tip. And if the qtip was colored, like the mold came off on it then there WAS mold, but if it was colorless then it was just bruising. Well my q-tip was PURE white. But the cake did ooze, or fizzle when i put the first q-tip on with h202. Now it looks more blue than green... Does it sound safe?
Did I slow the growth of my cakes?

You did the right procedure. It's ok for mycelium to fizzle when in contact with h2o2.
If the q-tip is white i'd say that's just bruising but anyway, keep an eye on that cake and see if the spot grows.
About slowing the growth of your cakes, maybe. The q-tip would make a little difference but the misting solution, was it mixed with water or was it pure h2o2 ?
