What caused this?
    #4301798 - 06/16/05 12:47 AM (13 years, 12 days ago)

Hello. Been here lurking for a while, just registered to post this. Got some funky looking stuff on my casings. I assume it's contam because it's growing rapidly and taking over. It's mostly white, but the middle part turns light green and looks like crystals/frothy. Anyone know what this is and if there's a specific cause?

Casings are WBS, B+ strain, 50/50 verm/peat with lime. Got a good first flush, but this happened during second. Same with two other casings.

Thank you.

That is called green mold (aspergillus, penicillium, or trichoderma prolly).  From the looks of it, your entire casing is fucked. Sorry man, you'll have to throw it out. :frown:

The outside is white because it hasn't formed spores yet.  As it matures in the middle of the colony, spores begin to form, giving it a greenish appearance.
