casing contamination....
    #3274570 - 10/25/04 10:11 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

My friend has now discovered a second casing has become infected with cobweb mold. The first is too far gone to save, however the second shows promising mycellium and just a small patch of cobweb. He sprayed the first casing with h202/water solution, with no luck. The new casing is a bulk and he does not want to loose it. Any suggestions?????? Thanks in advance

There's no guarantee, but the sooner you act the better. You can carefully cut out the casing surface around the cobweb, replace with fresh casing. The time I tried this successfully, I hydrated the casing patch with slightly diluted pharmacy peroxide. Then gave the whole surface a little peroxide misting. It worked well, but it's always going to be a gamble at best.
