A PROBLEM I HAVE .... !!!
    #2741622 - 05/28/04 03:20 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I have 2 containers filled with straw that are colonizing nicely ( i think it is about 70 % colonization ... ) but there is a little problem , in one of them i found signs of green mold contamination .

The second problem is i'm going to be away from home for 2 days . i think the stuff could get badly contaminated untill i come back so i dunked both of them in water+sodium hypochlorite solution , and i left it in my refridgerator .

My question is - will the mycelium be harmed if i let it 48 hours in there ? second question - could this dunking destroy the contamination ?

You're gonna dunk for 48 hours? I think you will kiil the myc if they're in ther that long.

Well I think you have a higher chance of drowning your myc (probably 100% chance) then contams. I dunno what to tell you.

i say throw the straw on yur outdoor patch and start over when you get back, and that way you dont risk that green mold droppin spores all in yur house.

hm ... sodium hypochlorite decomposes on NaCl and water , i think ...

And as much as i know , salt is a good mold killer , so that's the reason why this could work . This method stoped mold growth on a casing that i had before ...

Well ill just let it sit for 48 hours .

ps . the mold formed only realy tiny spots , so i think it could be stoped .

Ill post results as soon as i get back ...
