Green Mold What to do?
    #4030130 - 04/08/05 11:13 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I had 1 qt. whole brown rice jar that i inoculated about 5-6 days ago. I was going to use it for an invitro grow, but today i found a some small spots of green mold appearing on the rice. Would it be worth mix the rice all crumbled up into some shit/straw, and put it outside? I know mother nature kills bacteria and mold, and i just thought if i did this that it would grow and be ok outdoors? The cake is like 30-40% colonized so i figure if i mix it up real good it will colonize the shit/straw and maybe grow a few mushrooms.

Highly unlikely, you're better off just starting over. Tossing them outside you'll have better odds of seeing mushrooms than just pitching them in the garbage, but not by much.

Dont just mix it all in...first cut out the green spots..then mix whats left with the poo. Pasteurizing the poo would probably help, not really sure on that part though...just putting it outside in nature might be enough..alot of people throw out contamed and spent stuff in a hole (cutting away contamed parts first), and it turns out pretty well outdoors they say.

no it would not-

mother nature does not kill contaminants either;
actually, why cubes thrive so well in nature is because they slowly adapted to the bacteria and different contaminants that you find in bovine dung. it uses some of these, and is strong enough to fightn them off.
however, when you sterilize grain, you make it susceptible to all types of contam's that cubes don't see in their natural setting.

count your losses, and maybe try doing a few so that you have the ability to adapt to any problems that occur.

have fun

Tahoe says save it.

Photoguy says pitch it.

I have tried to save some of my soldiers from the green meanie, and it has not worked yet. Plus, it increases the chance that green mold will be released in your growing area.

Forget it! It?s almost impossible getting rid of "the green stuff" without damaging your mycelium.
You can put it outside some where, see if some mushrooms come out, but don?t count on it.
