I've heard quite alot about using salt after cutting out green. I've also heard a little about Gulf Coast shrooms doing quite well in salty soil. Does anyone know if you could use salt in substrate and/or watering? If so, how (measurements, ratio)? Would this be possible with other strains? Any info would be greatly appreciated! I would rather prevent it than fight it!

i imagine the reason it helps after cutting out the green is becaues it dries out the area it is touching, the mold cant grow there if it is dry (THIS IS ONLY A TOP OF THE HEAD THEORY AND HAS NO SCIENTIFIC BACKUP)

Believe it or not the green shows up after the mold itself has sporulated, it starts out white. When you see green there are millions of spores there which is why you should mist the green down with a H202/water solution before cutting it out to prevent those spores from getting airbourne and getting everywhere. I think the best way to prevent trich/green is great attention to sterility and clean FAE. Trich loves stale air and it usually enters from not properly sterilizing the casing layer or you yourself. Also if substrate wasn't 100% colonized before casing. As with any thing an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As far as salt in the substrate it would create a hostile environment for trich, but also myc. as well. It would take a lot of experimentation to come up with a ratio that would allow myc. to grow but not trich. If you could at all.
