I got some freen mold in my birdseed jarson the top. So I cracked the top and sprayed a water/hydrogen peroxide mix on the top, then shook it.... just to see what would happen..... and then threw it back in the incubator.
first day the mycelium took off like mad, same with the second day, mad growth. Then today, day three there were large sections where thr green mold was appearing very lightly..... lo, so I just repeated the process again... let's see what happens now....

of course this is just a stupid incidental experiment to satisfy my total mode of boredom :P !!!

I recommend you toss out anything and everything at the first sight of green. The green is only the spores. By the time the fungi sporulates, it has already taken over large parts of the casing or jar. Toss it out. The last thing you want in your growing area is trillions of trich spores being dumped everywhere.
