Cow Web Please help!
    #550352 - 02/13/02 07:15 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Hey guys I have a casing going made of ver, peatmoss, limestone, and oyster shell. All was looking good with some white spots poking through my dirt then today when I looked at my casing I saw GREEN! I cut out what I could find but I found as I was digging through my casing there seems to be alot of this cow web under my first layer of the casing. What can I do to help try to save my casing? please help, thanks

Green mold isnt cob web mold. Cobweb is white and whispy. As for green mold, theres not a lot you can do about it, especially when it seems that it has completely invaded your casing like it appearantly has. The only time a casing can survive is when a relatively small part of the casing is infected and can be cut out to keep the casing alive.

Did you sterilize your peat?

mold spores are constantly floating around in the air we breathe every day. If the mold is all the way thru the casing, it cant be saved. (some wouldnt risk it anyway)

Use more sterile conditions.

You might not have sterilized the casing properly.

You might have over watered your casing.

After looking at the casing now 2 days later Iam not seeing any more green mold, so I hope I have won this battle, in the future is there anyway to try to stop this?

Green mold is usually caused by non sterile techniques such as you wearing dirty clothes or being dirty. Green mold thrives in a wet, stagnant environment... so you can fight it by not letting the casing get too wet, and providing sufficient air exchange.
