Green Contamination (Pic) - Suggestions?
    #4745927 - 10/02/05 07:00 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)



There's some green mold in the lower right hand corner of this pic. Most mushrooms on the casing are pretty puny. You think cutting out the contaminated area would help?

Its hard to tell from the photo but the mold is greenish in color.

I'd cut out a big half moon circle and pack some H2O2 salt on the edge. Patch with new casing material

I just took a spoon and lifted the part with the green mold out. The mold was on the very top of the casing, not deep at all, came right off.

I also sprayed down the affected area with Hydrogen Peroxide. Not sure if I should do that or cut out the entire area completely.

You should move the entire tray outdoors before it contaminates your entire grow area. Trichoderma mycelium is white and is growing into the interior of the tray. It is only the spores that are green on the surface. By removing the 'green' you only took away the spores, thus releasing them and spreading the problem. Next time, provide more air exchange. Trichoderma thrives in stale, still air.

Thanks for the advice roger. Should I just fan more in the future or use something other than saran wrap as a cover? Would leaving them uncovered be better or worse?

I can't really move them outside, I isolated them away from my grow room though.

Saran wrap won't allow air exchange. I'd just leave them totally uncovered and mist as required. You need air movement to prevent trich.
