What To Do With Contamineted Compost / Substrate Cakes?
    #3744281 - 02/07/05 06:58 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I am wondering what to do with a contaminated compost... throw it away, or keep it growing to see if the myc take control of it, and if so, would it be better not keep it? :confused:

 

I was discussing it with a friend here, I told him I prefer to cook the compost a week before the inoculation, so I can see if some contam occured.

He told me that it would be better inoculate as soon as possible, so if there were a contam the myc will have the same chance...

:confused: :confused: :confused:

Thanks for any help... and excuse me for the Macarronic English.  :blush:

It depends on the size and kind of contamination. Try scooping out the infected section with a sterile spoon or knife and pouring some salt in it.

"Cook" should mean pasteurize. You should follow the process (pasteurization) as it is described. I would use the compost asap, if you don't do it, other microorganism will start growing and will jeopardize any future mycelium growth.

Excuse me. I didn't  make myself clear. :sad:

I am talking about the substrate cakes, and not the compost for the casing or so.

Thanks.
