Everybody elses opinion?
    #456603 - 11/12/01 10:36 PM (22 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, just wanted to ask about everybody else's opinion on this.... I recently experimented with a casing mix. I used jiffy mix with a little perlite (to help keep it from being all matted, as jiffy mix tends to do), calcium, and I added in a little whole wheat flour just to put some nutrient in there and see how it does. I know that upped my contam risk a good amount... Anyway, my setup has real good air exchange and I have peroxide in with my water so it keeps contams out pretty well. I've been keeping a close watch on the casings... this morning I got up and there was a little bit of green mold starting to show up on parts of the casing that hadn't been colonized yet... I got a spoon and some rubbing alcohol, rinsed the spoon off with the alcohol and scooped out the sections that had the green mold (Just a few sections) and then sprayed some dilluted peroxide on the casing... Checked on them a few minutes ago (midnight) and about 95% of the casing is now colonized and there's no sign of the green mold.... think I saved my babies? heh. Just wanted an opinion, I've saved cakes before... I know there's risks in the mycelium carrying the bacteria to other parts of the network, but in this case there was very little mold to begin with ( a couple areas a little larger than a BB). Anyway, I'm about to go to bed... just wanted some opinions :)

Vitamin C chase, kill the taste. You can tell its nasty by the look on my face.

You may get fruit from these casings, but chances are the greenery will return.
