lime juice/powder?
    #370992 - 08/13/01 09:24 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I read that you can spray your casing with lime juice or powder when misting so that cobweb mold doesn't occur. Does this really work? Does it have to be a certain kind of lime? Much feedback is greatly appreciated.

Baking soda dissolved in water will kill cobweb. This shouldn't be used as a preventative measure. Don't fix it if it aint broke. You may have been thinking of hydrated lime.

Thanks for the reply puscle. If I should get cobweb mold I spray it with the baking soda/ water solution? How much should I spray it with and for how long (day wise)? Do I spray just one time or until I don't see it anymore. One more question, Will this poison or affect the shrooms in any way? Sorry for the 20 questions but I want the knowledge so I can continue to be skilled grower. Thanks again.

Dissolve 2 tablespoons in a quart of water, mist the cobweb with that. Usually just one or two sprayings should kill it. Cobweb is easy to beat, and, no it won't harm you. Please don't make the common mistake of trying to kill the mycelia. Cobweb is grey, mycelia is white.

Just, if you have such a big cobweb problem, try to get rid of it through improoving your sterile technique so it doesn?t appear in the first place.
Figting it after it?s there is allways more difficult.

Anno, Puscle...
No one mentioned using Hydrogen Peroxide 3% solution for combating cobweb, how come? Are you reccomending a baking soda solution over H2O2?


Tell me something good then I might agree with you..

sent a pm but I don't think it went through..found this in my archive of past postings
hope it helps. Also read cobweb mold section at www.thehawkseye.com . I just had
a problem that was cured by use of straight hydrogen peroxide . here's the lime info I found.

Good cobweb cure: I just had my first bout with cobweb mold - its been thankfully basent in
previous casings. However, after reading TMC, something occurred to
me. Cobweb mold doesn't like high pH. One of the ingredients in casing in
hydrated lime. I acytually use pickling lime as its a little purer product
being food grade. However, lime is CaOH2 and has a really caustic
nature. A light dusting of lime on the casing surface and misting using a
sturated solution of limewater seems to have wiped it right out, and
pinning and fruiting continues unhampered.

Pickling lime is available at grocery stores in the canning section - not all
stores have it, but most do. Mrs. Wage's and Ball brands are the most
common. Calcium hydroxide dissolves in water and will form a precipitate
when saturated. The resultant supernatant is high pH limewater. If
exposed to air, the pH will drop over time, but in a sealed sprayer, it
should keep quite well for long enough to kill the cobweb mold. Its so
cheap you could just make it up fresh daily. A teaspoon per 16Oz sprayer
will more than saturate the water.
