A friend's last bulk grow run of 20 bins had failed before the fruiting stage. The substrate was straw spawned with bird seed. A week after spawning the straw from 10 of the bins were fully colonized and healthy (by visual inspection), but the other 5 showed signs of green mold so they were not cased and thrown out. Please note that the 5 contaminated bins were a result of poor bin washing and disinfection from last run. The other 5 bins were newly purchased so they have had no previous green mold contact. The 5 seemingly healthy bins were cased. A week later the all the cased bins were contaminated by green mold. I am clueless as to how this could have happened. My only hypothesis is that green mold spores are well known to spread by air.
