Whole batch ruined! =(
    #4522591 - 08/11/05 05:09 PM (12 years, 9 days ago)

Swim cased his jars in an aquarium under some green moss [was supposed to be pete moss] and vermiculite and oyster shell.

For a while everything seemed good, big mushrooms grew up the sides.

Then green mold showed up, at first he could pick it off - he sprayed with h2o2, sprayed with alcohol, nothing worked. All he ended up with was 2 batches of dried shrooms - ended up being 1 trip and 25 dollars.

How can this be prevented? Should all the jars be cased seperatly?

Soooo bummed.

Only got 1 print left too - B+.

Advice?

Make a liquid culture jar from the remaining print..

Sanitize the whole house, and use more sterile techniques.

I never use peat, I use coco coir, but I believe the green kind if totally different from the peat you're supposed to use when using peat.

The correct peat is like wood chips and shit, found with the perlite at the garden center, not the stringy green moss looking stuff.

Do things right. Use the right casing material, sterilize it, and do all of your work in sterile conditions, and make sure the room your casing is in is kept clean. Make sure you clean out everything well to get rid of the green mold, and next time just toss it when you see mold instead of trying to save it. You probably put spores all over your house now.

You can try salt on the green stuff too

yes the salt does work to a point. i tried it on a casing that got a little spot of green, the green disappeared, but so did the myc in about a 2" radius of the salt. got two very good flushes from the casing and the green reappeared. tossed it.
peace
