air flow
    #3276211 - 10/25/04 07:13 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

hi i cant really find an anwser to my question so ...i am growing a kit and right now the mushrooms are growing in the compost in a tupperware tub...very small green spots showed up in about 3 spots and i removed them. I am not sure but i think i might also have cobweb contamination but all the pictures i look at dont look like this. it is more of a very fuzzy almost a very fine cotton ball like fuzz but it is not as white as the rest. so i bought a fishtank air pump and put it in there. will this help or is this a bad idea? does it need to stay as humid as possible or is that what is possibly causing contamination??

It's hard to tell, a pic would really help.
As for cobweb goes, give it more air and more light. You can also try spraying the cobweb with some h2o:h2o2 solution.
Btw, do you have an hygrometer so you can read the Rh (humidity) ?
Also, try to describe better your terrarium and humidity materials and processes.

well my terrarium is just a tupper ware box with a lid and it is about id say 10x14 in. and about 7 in. deep. there are holes in the top of the lid for air. I have a hygrometer and temp guage and i keep it above 80 all the time and I keep the Rh as high as possible. it was a kit but the instructions werent very clear at all. I mixed up some h20:h202 solution and just sprayed in on the spots w/ a little spray bottle. The mushrooms seem to be doing quite well so far but does it seem like I'm doing things right? any advice would be great. also the mushrooms grow to the top of the container and hit the lid...should i pick them or does it matter if they hit the top? thanks!

If you don't see any green or cobweb any longer, then i'd say it's recovering.

It's ok if they hit the top.
