ugly green mold
    #4744969 - 10/02/05 12:58 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Okay got this problem and I dont have a digi camera so any help that can be provided would be helpful, I've had this nasty green mold invade a couple of my casings after the first flush, removed and threw them out, I had it spread a couple days ago to another casing, this one has shrooms about half-way grown on it. Now the mold starts out white, grows a lil bit, then starts to turn green, kinda from the inside out, its got a pretty thick consistantly(eyeballed, didnt touch it), can anyone identify this mold to a decent amount of certainty? Would you need any different information on it?

And the most important question, I cut the mold off the casing that has the shrooms growing, was only on the top layer, towards the center  of the casing, i cut it off and it didnt appear to be going any deeper, threw it out and swabbed with a lil bit of alcohol(out of h2o2), would it be advisable to just throw it out or can i continue growing this cake through at least its first flush(theres some pretty big ones on there that i would just love to eat)?

Any help would be appreciated, like i said, no digi cam, so the best I can do is describe :frown:

Thanks all,
Damos

Pick the mushrooms and toss the casing out. I don't ever recommend trying to save a casing with trichoderma. The mushrooms are perfectly safe to eat, but the tray is toast. Toss it, or at least move it outside. If the weather is warm enough, it will flush again outdoors.

Thanks, Ill get rid of it, temps around here are like 70 highs now adays with upper 40 lows, doubt i would get much of a second flush, but can I let the shrooms on there now grow to thier full size or should i pick them immediately?

Move it outside and let them finish if you want more size. I have some outside growing just fine with highs in the low 60's and lows in the 40's. Never leave a contaminated project in your grow area. It will puke mold spores everywhere and ruin your future projects.
