Second time my friend's garden was attacked with this green shit during the first flush. She has filters and air pump, she cleans it w/bleach between new casings, but as you can see.....it doesn't work well anough. If anyone ever had to fight this mold (Trichoderma I think) and has had some possitive results, please share your experience.
I'm arelatively newbie 'but was told ta get it out of the grow area because of the SPORES that it will release an really serew up thing's good then 'just wonderin if you don't have a buncha the spores floatin around yer space an may be that is what is contaminateing them.
the best way to fight mold and win is to never enter the battle.
try adding some lime or other alkaline additive to your substrate during mixup.
Stamets suggests that it may be possible to control by covering it with straight pure lime.
the photo suggests that the mold was noticed way too late. careful observation of the cakes could have allowed a premtive digging out of the affecteded area and its surroundings, followed by a spray of H2O2, perhaps followed by filling in any cavities with H2O2 soaked verm. this applies to tray culture more than cake.
take a look at your temperature. temps above80 F tend to favor contams
