Sanitation after green mold
    #4179246 - 05/15/05 07:22 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I just removed two cakes from my Poor Man's Pod because they were infected with green mold.

Very beginning stages, just one small spot on each one.

I trashed the cakes, but now I wonder what sanitation steps I need to take to protect my remaining cakes.

I have already removed the geolite that was directly below these cakes and soaked it in peroxide. I have also wiped down the sides of the tank with lysol.

What else should I do?

Do I need to remove the remaining cakes (Which are all doing nicely & fruiting, or close to fruiting) and spray the entire tank down with lysol?

Any recommendations welcome.

Here is a photo of my tank:

So, there is essentially nothing I can do to try to safeguard my remaining cakes?

no not really, once you see green it has already formed more spores. by removing them you probably spread a few around. you could try removing the rest to a clean tub and hope for the best. you could have great luck and not get any contams on the rest of your cakes though. i have a tub with one cake left in it that did not contam when all the others did. its been about a month now since i have removed the bad ones and the last cake is still clean. not producing really, but never the less still clean. myc still looks healthy, going to dunk and roll again and stick it right back in the same tub to see what happens. good luck to ya

Well, I only have 1 tub, & 1 tub worth of geolite, so for right now, I guess I will leave them.

I put some additional peroxide in the water, & wiped down the sides of the tank. I'll keep a close eye on the ones that are left.

The cakes that went bad are older than the others that are in the chamber. Hopefully, the rest will be strong enough to fight it off.
