    #466126 - 11/22/01 07:50 AM (21 years, 17 days ago)

I hear alot about hydrogen perioxide and have heard both good and bad about using it on mushrooms. well it makes sense chemically that the hyphae or mycellium would change the peroxide into water and oxygen but how?? and secondally doesent hydrogen peroxide kill bacteria? the mycellium being a type of bacteria wouldent that kill it????? any imput I would like to know. has anybody tried this or is it just kind of hoax of people trying to get people to "DO IN" thier little friends thanx.

PEACE

every question you asked was answered in that 'tek'.

Here, i'll take the "work" out of it for you by posting it here.... but your still going to have to 'read' the answers to your questions.




Many people seem a bit confused as to what peroxide can and can not do. Hydrogen peroxide will kill bacteria and fungal spores and inhibit the growth of yeasts. Unfortunately, mushroom spores fall under the category of fungal spores, so they will not germinate on peroxidated agar because they are killed on contact. The good part about this is that mold spores, such as spores from the dreaded green mold, fall under this category as well and are also killed upon contact with the agar surface. What will grow on peroxidated agar is existing fungal colonies, such as your living mushroom mycelium, because their cells can produce enzymes that will cause the peroxide to be broken down into water and oxygen. The downside, however, is that existing colonies of some molds, such as green mold, are also capable of producing these enzymes, so peroxide will not guard against mold spores that have already germinated. But perhaps the best attribute of peroxide is that it will kill all bacteria, so you will never have a problem with bacterial contamination on peroxide enriched agar. "
