Please help me save my first batch
    #369800 - 08/10/01 01:22 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I am not quite sure what course to take with this.
I have 2 cased trays in a terrarium, 1 of which developed some light green mold I first saw this morning. I scooped with out with a spoon, then sprayed with H2O2. 5 hours later, it doesn't seem to be back . . . yet.
Someone told me I need to isolate the other tray so it doesn't get contaminated either- but, I really have nowhere else to put it but in the yard and it is hot as hell here right now (90-96 highs each day) so, I'm afraid the heat will be too much for the shrooms (correct me if I'm wrong).
It has been just 2 days since I took the lids off, added light, and cooled things to initiate pinning.
What should I do next?
1- Scrape the top layer of verm off, and if I see no green underneath, re-cover and start the pre-pinning in darkness cycle again?
2- Put the (at least was) contaminated casing in the yard?
3_ Keep watching for green and scoop and H2o2 it?
4- other ideas?
Thanks for helping me with this frustrating situation. I am definitely taking steps to control contams on the front end better next time.

Update-
After spraying H2O2 and spooning out the green portions, I am not seeing any more green clumps growing . . . . though a couple of portions of the mycelia have me worried as they aren't perfectly pure white . . a bit of a tint to them.
This looks like it might be the "forest green" mold.
Anyone had the balls to conquer it?

Some parts of mine are white and fluffy, others a little more greyish.
Kind of like my beard (Not).
