what do do with casing
    #4527564 - 08/12/05 08:13 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

First let me say thanx to everyone that has helped me indirectly here at the Shroomery.
I very new to this whole thing but have had great success so far.... so I thought.
I used the PF tec and inoculated 7 1/2pt jars with 1cc each(b+ strain). not one got contaminated 6 have fully colonized and the seventh will be ready by tonight I'm sure. I cased 2 BRF cakes, using 50/50 peat moss and vermic. both a layer under and on top of my colonized sub. Left it covered for 2 days and saw allot of myc coming through..... great huh!! into the fruiting chamber it went. 2 more days have passed and more myc on the top of the casing....

here's the question, over night last night i got two bright white heavy, and i mean heavy/thick, spots on this casing ... now 12 hrs later I'm noticing that one of them has a green tint now.....
am I contaminated?
can i save the rest of the casing?
can i cut out the bad and save the rest?

also after i put a cake or see myc on the top of a casing, how long will i need to wait until it starts to pin?

Sadly, it appears - you are about to get a blue/green mold learning lesson.

Once - you got it.... it doesn't go away.

You can sometimes pour a small mound of table salt on a spot like that. Which -will stall it's spread. Sometimes - long enough to pull off a flush.
