Mycelium vs green mold, mycelium is kicking ass
    #3952660 - 03/22/05 10:12 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

A little over a week ago I noticed some irregular looking mycelium on my casing that looked like it could be a contam. I took it out of the fruiting chamber and put it in a small plastic storage bin. Couple of days later it turned out to be green mold, but not the dense kind, the really really whispy kind, you can't even tell its green through the opaque container lid. Forward a couple of days and there are at least 40 little mushrooms growing (it's only a 1.5 pint 8" by 3.75" casing) and there seems to be less green. It's doing waay better than the casings in the grow chamber. And this thing has been sitting at room temperature, with no humidity aids, no fanning. Whatever this mold is, it doesn't seem to be harming the mushrooms. This is defenatly contam and not bruising by the way. Has anyone ever experienced something like this?

Contams are like Iceburgs....

You see 10% while the other 90% is hidden underneath

Never heard that one, but donkiby is right on.. I dunno why everyone tries to save contaminated jars or casings. Ditch it, a contaminated grow space is worse, and very possible, happened to afoaf...

Still it can be done, Im talking from own experience, read it here:

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3676228/an/0/page/8

In this case I saw it from the transparant sides of the tub. I recently had another tub infected, which was the "iceberg". Still some large healthy parts but I tossed it.

Sometimes its worth a try.

No offense Mushroomfriend, your very knowledgable and consistent with your answers/replies...

But not everyone, in fact, the majority shouldnt contemplate saving cakes or casings.

You and alot of us can do it, but alot will not know when to draw the line and just discard the crap. Ive met a couple on here who have eaten and gotten sick from contamed subs, nothing serious at all.

Some people just arent capable of using common sense like yourself.

I had a quart jar that went contammed with green mold but had a lot of myc growin so I threw it in a closet for a few weeks just to see what would happen.

Kinda forgot about it then a month later I found it, it was fully colonized and a few mushers starting invitro.

I took it out and crushed it up and cased it but nothing ever came of it.....maybe eating green mold makes myc retarded.

True, but the stupid ones wont listen anyway! :laugh: :grin:

And you know, spores ARE everywhere, thats why we get green mold in the first place. Not to stimulate waving with carboard over your green funghi but.... It, rescueing contammed casings, can be done in certain cases, when you take care. It can also fail, but if you keep taking care, no bigger problems will arise.

Ofcourse, dont try this @ home. :grin:

I recently had a bulktub I spawned 2 jars of EQ/rye to it.

It didnt start off, as the other tub had a 6-7 day spawnrun. And yes, after 3-4 days there was GREEN everywhere in that tub. It slowed the myc down enormous.

Also I almost boiled that straw/poo, (over 90C) so I think it was doomed in the 1st place. But I hadnt any substrate left so thought to give it a try.
Al the good guys gone, in the casing proces spores land between teh bulk sub. etc etc

The tub is still (with lid fermly on) alive, but will kill soon... Maybe a funeral maybe in the green waste container.

:cheers:

MF
