Is that a casing in the pic? What did you case with and was it sterile? Quality licks balls  :tongue:, but it looks rather dark and WET.

sorry man about the pic, but i have to use my webcam.. it is wet, but just the sides and the top... is that BAD?? does the top layer have to be dry? ... and just wondering, do i use 3% H202 FULL STRENGTH, or mix it with water??

ARG i mean, the whole thing is textbook, the under layer is verm, and its field wet.. and the middle is mycelium... so i just scooped out the top layer mostly and patched it.. and i hope that works? but i wanna spray it with H202.. wut is the mixture for it?

If you are only doing the dirt for 30 min you might be under pastuerizing the dirt. I would start with a longer pasturization time first and maybe just doing cakes in a casing. You may just be getting contams in the dirt and its not the area you are working in.
I know a guy that had a similar prob when using grain. After he switched grains (from popcorn to WBS) things seemed to work better.
Hope this helps. We all feel your pain.

With that amount of contams you most likely will not kill it with h2o2 and by removing the contam. Try salt in the area and cut out a big chunk. It does look kinda hopeless though

Problem one. Notice how h202 doesn't fuck with myc. Well it doesn't do shit to green mold either. Esp if it has a hold already. Looks like it's starting in the casing layer. Plus your jars seem to colonize without getting contamed. So lets get the casing layer ready the same way. Take the casing layer and make it like you usually do except add just a touch more moisture. Put them in the jars and PC like You normaly do with the grains. Let the jars cool and just poor it on the substrate fast when you make them. I like to do the work in a closet that has been sprayed all to hell with lysol or oustand have aface mask on.

Good luck.

My friend had the same problem. He is a noob trying his first casing. One of his pans got green mold, but he caught it early and sprayed it with 80/20 water/h2o2 and it DID get rid of it. The key was sterile casing and he watched it like a hawk everyday for the first week.

Spraying the shit out of your casing is just going to invite more bad stuff to grow and more than likely give your mycelium a good drowning. maybe you should try fruiting a cake before going on to casing cakes and you might have more success.

250 whats...?
250 degrees F = 121 degrees C
250 degrees C = 482 degrees F

doesnt matter what you did you sure as hell aint pastuerizing anything at those temperatures.

i think the water hes spraying on the casing isnt sterile so when theres a nice pool of it some molds moved in.

Later NoG

well the h2o2 does damage all living organisms but it just kills one cell per 0 molecule that breaks off so once an organism is strong enough it usually takes ALOT to kill it off. From the looks of that mold anything strong enough to kill it would also damage the mycelium.
Magash is right though, if your cakes are making it fine and its your casing thats getting the mold then its not from the room (but if you keep growing that mold out it very well might find a spot in your house eventually) try a different casing matierial or like Magash said do your dirt like you do your cakes.
