Chlorine has a tendency to retard growth depending on the concentrations 1:200 I've seen work alright. Also H2O2 also retards slightly so if you aren't trying to get rid of contams leave h2o2 misting for after harvesting your flush to build moisture content back up to optimal and slightly disinfect your casing.

It'll be better than none(the more the better once primordia appear) , and oh yeah , no more bleach mix sprayed on the children , they do not like and in some cases will even die from it  :blush:. Use a peroxide dillution like a 20:1 ratio of distilled water to hrdrogen peroxide . Once pins are there cut back misting , and definetly avoid misting the little fellas themselves , hit walls with mist then .
Good Luck

My bad ...correction to follow ......
For misting... distilled water is fine no h2o2 or bleach needed , but if used in humidification system a 20:1 ratio of water :hydrogen peroxide is good to use , no bleach here either .

Never heard that peroxide dillutions retard growth , unless in high ratios .hmmmmm
very interesting ... affraid to not use , but curious about what you mention there ... :confused:
I am concerned my air exchanger would grow all sorts of nasties if I did not keep h2o2 in resivoir . DUH we are talking misting here .......shut up Trip n D .

sadly i have been misting the little mounds or buttons with the bleach
water to the point when i look at the buttons they have little drops of water sitting on them well at least it not to late by the way the other day i noticed one of my casing this casing i am talking about is
slighty behind the rest got green mold at first i was not sure if it was mycelium or mold it looked kind of greyish then it started turning
light green i stupidly fanned my chamber then i dumped baking soda on
the mold i then took a spoon and removed all the mold and casing around it i figered i probly spread some of the spores so i misted the casing with my bleach mix i hope i can pull off at least two flushes from that casing if any more mold pops up i am going to dump
baking soda on the spots to stop its spread i will keep a very close eye on that casing i plan on faning my other casing first and having that casing as the last casing to be fanned to minamize the chance of it spreading to my other casings

Bleach bad! Green casings bad! Peroxide good! I always use when misting (5% mixture) and when filling humidifiers (5% in cool mist, slightly less in ultrasonic)! I'm thinking casing's with mold being kept is a bad idea as well! Same with baking soda! Think you got to many chemicals harshing the shroomies mellow! Good luck!
