green mold keeps comming back
    #2977798 - 08/08/04 11:38 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

So i did a casing using 50/50 and it worked fine. This was using a brand new bag of peat moss. My second casing got green mold and i had to throw it out. I cleaned my room with lysol and the bins, alcoholed the bins, and threw out the perlite. I did another casing which shoulda been fine since i cleaned everything REALLY well. It is getting green mold just like the other ones. What i am thinking is maybe since i keep the peat moss outside, it is getting the mold spores in it. I sterlize it by doing 3 min in the microwave, waiting a bit, then another 3 minutes in the microwave. Do you guys think the microwave isnt sterlizing the peatmoss/verm enough, or do you think i am not killing the spores good enough...? If there are still spores in my room what should i do? I dont think i can really sterlize my room/bins any better than i did... i guess the only other option would be to stop growing for a month or so, clean the room/bins a few times then start again?

- Got any magic mushrooms?
- No, but i got some drawf mush that will really blow your head off. Look at this, last time i took it, i was seeing fairies for 3 days!
- Nicey nice! Roll us a giant!

Clean completely a few times, use lysol bleach and alcohol. It its most likly sterlized when you take it out of the microwave and its either where you are doing your casing at or where your casing goes that is catching the green mold. Work on your sterility techniques more. I use a small room with no carpet, sprayed down with lysol with bleach, I grab a shower and throw on some boxers right out of the dryer and thats it then do my work (2 HEPA filters running in the room for 2 hours before on high and then both running on low while I do my work). I also use a paint mask and disposible vinal powderfree gloves. I also sterilize the fork I use to break up the substrate with a butane flame then wipe clean with alcohol..

Not a single problem with contams yet except a syringe of GT's that put out nothing but green.

By the way, "dwarf" is misspelled in your signature :smile:

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
