Battle gray stuff...
    #3501840 - 12/15/04 03:16 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

whoa so this sucks i got home and my casing got attacked by cobweb or something. I posted in the contamination forum and the only reply i got is get pics. cant get any with my crappy camera i got. I dunno it is darker grayish with blue than the cobweb pics in the contam page. theres one spot where its hittin the hardest and its got overlay in the middle and gray all around. It still smells fine too.. Mabye the myc trying to fight it? I made a 10/1 mix of water and h202 sprayed it down real good and then did it again about 3 -4 hours later. Am i doing everything right so far? Im going to give it until tomorrow and if its gotten worse than its no good right? At least i know exactly how it happened. Me being lazy not steralizing the casing to patch spots after the first flush. Lesson well learned i must say. Well yah know that makes me happy that i had 3 jars that are still colonizing and there still in their jars lol.. I dunno i may try cakes my next try but i dont have the right setup for humidity for cakes right now. Well i will let you guys know what happens in the morning. im goin to sleep, and to pray. Is that what you guys would of done to your casing?

Cobweb mold is whispy and fluffy. Put some 3% peroxide in your spray bottle full strength and spray the mold. If it's cobweb, it will melt on contact with the full strength HOO2. Up your air exchange. Cobweb is caused by stale, still air.

well i threw out a bunch of jars with grey growth i assume it was cobweb real fluffy grey grows quick,but like i said im not trying to fight a bunch of contam jars.. luckly it i made a bunch of karo up..really spreads out your supply..so my next guess is to be more sterile..i wa swondering if i could install a fish pump into my incubator to bring in fresh air circulate it around..

Here are some more pics of cobweb , notice how cobweb will even compete with green nasties . If you zoom in you can really see how whispy cobweb gets . I was so bumed when this happened , but I got some real sweet detailed pics as you can see .

Well i dont see any more gray but the spot where it hit the worst is all overlayed and now theres green in it. Im thinkin its time to say goodbye to this casing? Crap went from gray to green. its pissin me off Now i got a fist size piece in my casing thats all overlay with some light green crap in it here and there. I got my other 2 jars which will be ready soon so i dont wanna mix them until i know whats up. Thanks

Do not forget to do a complete cleaning of the grow chamber before putting in any new cakes , move very slow and precise when removing that bad batch so as to minimize any of it from becoming air born .
Good Luck

I had a real bad "rash" of the shit last year :frown: . I noticed it was from going from being use to using an AC to a PC . I was making mixtures a little to moist , I did all sorts of shit to try and kill it off ... as you know to no avail , fire(used a torch) worked great but killed myc . Allowing them to dry up completely helped , but once water was reintroduced to bring back the myc , so did the damn green nasties , cobweb was gone but not the greens .
Peroxide 30% didnt help either , 90% alch. no luck , exposure to intense sun light no luck , maybe some chemo therapy would work  :wink:
I have on a few occasions purposely grew nasties :confused: , just to see them and try to kill them , when lipstick started I gave up , that shit scares the hell out of me . :eek:

I have use of a real nice camera :thumbup: that is how I get these sweet ass pics that can be zoomed in on  :thumbup:

No money in successfully growing the shit with nice pics though  :wink:

I had some that were worse , just these showed two types of nasties , and some healthy myc in there to that is why I saved these , figured good educational pics .

Over on the left side appears like possible cobweb , I do see a tint of green in what looks like some healthy myc . Personally I would issolate this tray and watch and learn , but that is me . Like I mentioned to agar , I have on a few occasion "purposely" grown nasties , just to learn how they look , grow , and react to differnt enviro conditions . I wish I saved the pics of agar dishes growing shit to . For shits and giggles if ever given chance , cough on a clean petri , some neat and large varietis of shit grows :eek:

I agree with Agar ... most nasties are like herpes or aids , once you got it , you'll never get rid of it  :tongue:

That doesnt look like healthy myc, or myc at all..that looks like green mold for sure. Green mold will spread looking white often but will turn green. Its not a ropey white though..more of a moldy looking white, like what you see on bread.
