Cob Webs?
    #524909 - 01/18/02 09:00 PM (15 years, 9 days ago)

Hello peeplz...
Here's the deal. My pet frog is a beginner and has had some very slow colonizing jars going (like..2 months now)....just birth one today to find that the whole cake had a yellowish tint. Froggy also notice a cob-web type resemblance (though pics. are difficult to pin point cobs) in the cake.
How does cob web actually form?
Too much moisture?
Froggy has heard the lightly misting the cake/casing with H2O2/H2O eliminates the cobs?
And will the cob web infect others in the same terrarium?
Thanks to all for sharing the knowledge
My desire for knowledge

cob web is mold, it comes from sterility problems (although it does happen to the best). yes it will spread to others in the same terrarium. That yellowish tint sounds bad, i recommend tossing the cake.

Yes peroxide can be used for cobweb mold, its great when otherwise good casings get a small breakout of cobwebs, not so good when the infection is so far along.

I am having difficulties a swell, distiguishing between cobweb mold and mycelium on some of my experimental wood loving jars. I sprayed with h2o2 and water and it did not harm the growth at all??? I know cobweb, is supposed to grow very fast...my mycelium took three days to colonize the surface of the brf/verm, but looks very cobweb like, but also much like mycelium...and there is no bad smell so I think it is mycelium. Still confused though...maybe I will give them another spray down with the peroxide and see if that slows it down....cheers.

And that is all the news that's fit to print
