Can Bleach fumes in a PMP affect pinning casings?
    #2519992 - 04/02/04 09:28 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hi everyone,

My friend just put his first casing (after incubation) into a poor man's pod for fruiting (60/40 verm/coir)
He cleaned his geolite with bleach (soaked overnight in maybe a 40% bleach solution) but did not do a very thorough rinsing (he did rinse though, so there must be at least some dilution), now his PMP has a decent bleach smell (he wouldn't say strong, but not too bad).

His question is, will this will affect his casing at all? he says it's been in the fruiting chamber for about 3 days with no obvious changes... he's grown cakes before (in a PMP), so he realises pinning can take a while... it's just the bleach fumes scare him.

The casing is isolated in it's own container and not contacting anything that was bleach soaked. Will the humidity in the air contain any bleach? or will it remain in the reservoir?

Can anyone give me any advice to pass on to my friend? He realises he could just change the water to resolve this, but wants to know if he's risking anything leaving it like it is.

Thanks very much.

why risk anything. Why not just rinse it all again and make sure its clean.

Your call...lose all your cakes to being lazy or spend 10 minutes to wash some stuff out and not lose any cakes

Hello, thanks for the response.

You do speak the truth, so maybe I'll just advise him to cover the casings for a little bit & rewash the whole chamber.

He still thinks it may work, as mycelium can withstand low concentrations of bleach.

Aside from getting the casings to fruit, it would be nice to know purely for informational purposes. If he ends up leaving them in there, he will be sure to let you all know if it worked or not :smile:

Thanks

Well, it's a moot point now anyway.
My friend returned home from work yesterday to find a few pins on the casing...

And that's after only about 4 days in the fruiting chamber...
