moldy substrate
    #3456051 - 12/06/04 07:32 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

hey guys.. okay, i bought my jars with the mycellium already growing in it,, i sterilized my bins and i sterilized my organic straw by boiling it.. it has been 16 days since i mixed the straw and the hay and in one the the bins there is a big patch of white growing on top of the straw.. but in the other bin only spread out white spots about the size of quarters.. also.. in some spots there is green mold.. alot in one spot.. i sprinkled salt on the green mold and i want to know will this ruin my whole crop? and also should i wait long before casing?? until the enitre straw is covered by a layer of white? thanks guys

you should cut out the green mold then add salt..... wait till it is all white before casing....boiling the straw-- you shouldnt do it that hot... the water is just steaming a little and your in ok temp....but its easiest to get a thermometer from somewhere (a food one) and watch temp for best results....160-180f

Then toss it out and pasteurize next time... and don't use hay.
