odd contam perlite then a cake *pics* Anyone help?
    #548831 - 02/12/02 12:48 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

First time it hit the perlite i let it get out of hand.... I cleaned the perlite.


Bout 4 days later a cake come down with the same mold. I thougt it was different mold on the cake cuz it hadnt sporulated yet. This mold starts off fuzzy looken white shit that grew over the cake layer then turns to a lime greenish color as it releases spores. Anyone seen somthing like this.
(pic prior to sporolation).



And the most recent perlite contam that popped up overnight pic. This perlite is only bout a week old and its already coming down with the same crap. Ive put sooo much h202 in the perlite it is not helping the situation....




Any thoughts on how to rid of this crap. Would prefer that it doesnt eat up any more cakes... I spray lysol liberally and let it settle before i open the terranium. Hands are washed down with alcohol before touching anything.

I would move the cakes to another terrarium and clean that one with bleach water. Ive never seen anything so resistant to peroxide.
Any one else have any thoughts?

I think you should just do the bleach thing...you have some really hearty stuff floating around your grow area. Be extra liberal in your lysol sprayings too.

Sounds a lot like trich. I tried to battle trich with both H2O2 and Isopropyl OH. Neither method worked for me. Increase your air exchange and possibly bake your perlite, and bleach your terrarium. It sucks when the contams move into the fruiting chamber.

I had some algea growing on my perlite. Maybe you have two separate contams. Algea (harmless) and trich. Your explaination of white turning to green sounds like trich. I wouldn't think that much could grow on the perlite itself seeing that there is a lack of nutrients in it. Try this: place a contammed portion of perlite out on a plate and see if it turns brown. As algea dries this is expected. If after drying the color remains you have another sort of contam.

If you are having problems with algea, remember, algea requires light to live.

Hmm i supose to could be algea. And just trich hit that one cake. Im gonna try yer thing with some of the funky perlite joshua and see if it turns brown.

If ya pour straight h202 on the shit it fizzles bad. It also starts fuzzy looken. Would trich even want to grow in perlite? Its not trich spores either.

Thanks a bunch of the input!
