cobweb on my straw
    #3677724 - 01/25/05 02:37 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Im using a bin with straw to grow and i checked it today and it had grey cobweb growing on the top of the straw. The last time before that i checked it was 3 days ago and everything was fine then. The straw is about 60% colonized right now. What should i do about the mold?

Plenty of air, light and mist with h2o2/h2o solution.

Add 1 portion of h2o2 (peroxide) to 10 portions of water.
1:10 ratio

i wanted to check what it looked like under the straw where the contaminated area was so i picked all the contaminated straw out and there was good mycelium underneath. the contamined area was a circular area about 5 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches deep. the whole bin of straw is about 5 1/2 inches deep. it was pretty easy to tell what was mold because it came out very easy where the mycelium was strong and held the straw. so should i try to pick out every last peice of the straw with mold on it i can find or will it be alright? the rest of the bin is doing just fine it looked about 70% colonized.

You don't need to leave the bin open. Just fan a little bit more and increase the light timings. Do it until the mold show signs of weakening, just don't make the environment to humid.

It would be better if there's no mold at all.
