i've got a tray happening that is contaminated. it's the dark green mold that is often found when the aborts rot. now then... should i risk it and let it keep growing and keep the mushrooms? or should i trash it?

I would definately sterilize an exacto knife and cut out the contamination. Be sure to get a good distance around the contamination and be sure to sterilize the exacto knife each time you go back to cut more out. I wouldn't waste those cubies. I had some slight contam my last casing, I cut it out without any problems. L8rs.

you can try to cut it out but thats risky. if it is green then the spores are prolly all over the casing by now, ifnot your whole fruiting chamber!!

i would toss it.
