you probably should chuck that jar bud. cobweb is a very fast colonizer and, well, its a contam.

if you REALLY wanted to save that jar you probably could, but its such a process. first you have to make a very small fruiting chamber out of a coke bottle with the top cut off or something and put perlite in it (you can cover with syran wrap). also mix some H2O2 into the pearlite with water. then you need VERY sterile sharp utensils, like a razor to cut out the contamed part. leave the cake in there to recover and fan like normal.

IMO its a pain in the ass and its not worth it. you also end up handling the cake lot which is also never cool. just chuck it unless its really worth that much to you.

Keep it isolated by itself and fruit it in a pop bottle or small rubbermaid or something. Its not "safe" quite probably covered with cobweb spores. But its also possible, it wasnt cobweb and was just mycelium. There are many different looks to mycelium, even thin and wispy and greyish that can look like cobweb to the untrained eye...

If it does have cobweb, when you put it in a fruiting chamber the cobweb should fluff up and then you'll know. Spray with h202 on that cake to try and keep it back. Many fight cobweb successfully with just h202...

ohhhhhhhh shit man im sorry i read your post wrong (morning). well first are you sure it was cobweb? and second, it might still be there, just not directly visible on the surface. ive had contams in brf/verm jars that were in the core of the cake, and the outside at one point looked funny but eventually looked okay. once i wasn't sure about one and opened it up and it was REAL nasty in the core.

its possible it may have recovered because you took it out of the incubator, and maybe that killed the cobweb but not the mycellium. but im not positive of that because i dont know growth details about cobweb.

if you arent sure about it and it looks fine, put it back in the incubator until its finished colonizing. then take it out and put it in a soda bottle like i said before, just dont use H2O2 in the pearlite. you dont ever want to put a contammed cake or a questionable cake into a fruiting chamber with other cakes because ive had mold spread across pearlite before.

p.s. if it pins, ive eaten mushies off cakes with some green/grey spots before, and was perfectly fine. but only do that if you wanna take the risk of eating a mushroom from a contammed cake.

There should be no problem putting h202 in the PERLITE, in fact, I'd recommend it.

yeah, i dont know why i thought it would make a difference in a soda bottle than in a rubbermaid.

Cobweb mold will grow like mad and become very obvious.
Cobweb mold is darker than cubensis mycelium... more of a grey than a white.
Once you have seen cobweb mold...it is very easy to tell the difference.
Regular cubensis mycelium can look an awful lot like cobweb until you know what to look for.

Here is a picture of cobweb mold.


good luck!~
