Odd looking mycelium on casings
    #313502 - 05/09/01 11:23 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Did the sea of shrooms tek w/ EQ's and SA's did half w/coir and half w/50-50+. Covered w/foil w/ holes then put put them in sterilite w/ perlite after 30-50% of casing was colonized. It's been 5 days now and the coir has colonized a bit more, but the 50-50+ casings have odd clumps of smooth surfaced myc 1/4 in. circles. They are not at all fuzzy looking like the coir, is there something wrong or is it just different for different types of casing material? There is 12 hr flourescent, a bubbler, and a pan of rye grass for 02.Fanned and misted litely twice a day

Don't worry, give the coir a couple more days and it will turn green on you.... promise, it always does.

sorry though

My question is, is this smooth surfaced clump of white myc on the 50-50+ normal? Also I pasturized the coir in the oven 175 for an hour, won't it be ok.

rumor has it that certain brands of coir have trychoderma in it..if you got the right brand supposidely it should require no pasurization..i think grow brick is the good brand..

THe fuck is sterilite..... man I must not get out much....

Thricoderma will first show up looking like bright white mycelium breaking through the layer of casing..... sound's like thats what you have... cut it out with a 1/2 margin around the infected area's replace with 5050+ and inject h202 in the medium.

Someone should email me a bowl.

snakeboy.. What you're saying sounds familiar. Your humidity may be a little high.

It's a small spot on the casing that's become overlaid. No pins will grow through it. I'm not sure where you are in the crop cycle, but after you harvest the next flush consider scraping those spots off while removing any abhorts. If necessary, fill in the resulting divit w/ some casing material.

Sterilite is another company like rubbermaid that makes the storage bins. Does this trich stuff look white smooth and form in 1/4 in. clumps? Its all on the 50-50+ and none on the coir casings, and it hasn't grown larger. I might scrape it off and put on coir, how does that sound?

I just wonder why its only on the 50-50+
casings and not on the coir they are side by side.

Because coir is more absorbant.

ahem... *myke gathering his thoughts.* Anytime my buddys casing layer got thricoderma... it started out as bright white cotteney mycelium and with in a day or so it turned green. Cobweb mold starts out grey. I tried to find some pictures of tricho but I could only find a picture of cobwebmold on hawks site. When trichoderma is exposed to high humidity, it turns white then fruits green...

Actually, the green molds kind of look like frosty white clumps of myclia, which after a day will turn sea foam green. By this time, the green mold will have run through the substrate. Gotta pitch it, I'm afraid.

Well the 50-50+ casing layer got scraped off and replaced w/coir and acouple days later started pinning.Did some "deep scratching" and didn't even realize it at first.The pins were busting thru the coir like mad.
