straw resistance to contam question..
    #3719353 - 02/02/05 04:00 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i already tried to find this in the FAQ/cultivation archives but couldn't find anything really pertaining to this situation.




there's a bag with straw in it that has been colonizing for about a week.

the straw was noc'd with popcorn spawn. somehow, during the process of introducing the spawn to the straw, a bit of the mean green got hold of some spawn.. but it seems to be contained to a couple of very slight spots in the straw (the two corners of the bag actually, and it has slowly been shrinking)

so the question is: is straw known to defeat such cases of contamination as it is colonized?

You do realize there is a forum specifically for contamination, right?
If the mycelium grows over the green meanies, then there really is no need to worry. But personally I throw everything green out...

yeah, i guess this was the wrong forum but thanks for the input about it regardless.

good rule to have, i would have tossed it had i not noticed the significant reduction of green..

i'm still hoping it'll disappear
