contamination and casing
    #2482319 - 03/30/04 01:17 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

One of my jars got contaminated , and there is just a little spot on the bottom that is realy light green ... I was thinking if this can still be cased/spawned ??? I was thinking to remove just that part and add only healthy mycelium to the straw ... Is that gonna work ?

Could i , when mixed wiht straw , spray some H2O2 solution to kill the bacteria to be sure ??? Please some help ...

If it's a green spot then it's mold and H2o2 won't do any good. you coud cut it off and try spawning it, but I wouldn't waste my straw. just wait till you have clean spawn.

Ill post a link there to this topic ... I was thinking that H2O2 kills mold , hm , what does it kill than ??

Straw isn't realy problem for me , i about 4 m3 of straw packed tight ... Ill give it a try ... The color is realy wierd so that's why i'm not sure what it is .. It is realy light green color , i noticed it today for the first time ... If i only had a good digital camera !!! grhh

One more question , if i colonize straw with birdseed , do i need to use later a casing layer ? Or can i just fruit from the straw like i would when it's cased ?

What I've seen and been told in contam forum is that peroxide is best for bacterial problems, but has little affect on molds. I've seen it fight a little cobweb here and there, but I know it's no good on trich.

If it's green, it's bad for myc and bad for you. the rule of thumb is get it out of the lab and toss it. You could probably cut out the infection and dunk in 1/100 bleach, and rest pretty easy.

A casing of 1/4 the height of the substrate is reccomend for straw as well as other bulk subs, but is not required to produce fruits.

Ok ... can you tell me a bit more about this dunking with bleach . In my country i can buy 5% bleach ( sodium hypochlorite ) solution ... So i should add some more distilled water to that to dunk or can i use it in this high concentration ? I think ill make it dilute anyway ...
The problem is i can get my colonized birdseed out only in crumbled pieces becose i have shouldered jars ... Could i dunk just the pieces and than add to pasteurized straw ...

Can you explain that i bit more or can you give me a link where i can find some of the info ...

Sorry if im annoying , but i'm going to school in 5 minutes so i don't have time right now to search ...

Thanks for any help !

There's the bleach dip thread...although I not sure it's a good idea for you...I was thinking you had a cake to dunk, but the increased surface area of the grains will mean a lot more bleach exposure, something you might want to think about.
