I noticed a green speck growing on the top of my casing earlier this week. I cut it out. The next day it was back. Well I moved it out of my fruiting chamber and put it in my incubator, and removed the green again. Sprayed with peroxide, so-on. Well for a couple days I did not see anything. Last night I looked at the sides and the bottom was green. This looks like it started and pretty much and stayed on the casing soil. Mircle grow. I took the casing out off the tray, and the whole bottom was covered in green spots. I cut the bottom off and the top off. Put the clean substrate in a new tray and recovered it this time with coco coir, and verm. I do not think it has much a chance. I did spray the substrate with bleach water before I cased it. Then put tin foil over it a put it in the fruiting chamber. I did notice that some of the substrate was sort of brownish white. I did not use any of this. Only the good stuff. What do you expert's think.

Only time will tell, but if the contamination keeps showing up you won't have many chances to save it.
You could try a bleach dunk but don't expect much. Recurrent contaminations mean starting all over again on most cases.
