Are the "webs" a light grey color... if so it sounds like you have "cobweb mold". It is dactylium which is a form of mildew. The best solution I have found is to soak your entire casing in 3% hydrogen peroxide for 6-12 hours, drain it really well, and try to pin again.

> So is soaking a huge casing in perozide really worth it?

If you have something else that will be ready to case soon, probably not.  My friend has only ever tried to save a casing twice.  Both times were with cobweb and both times the casing was saved.  My friend has access to large bottles (1000 ml) of 30% (not 3%) h2o2 which she dilutes down to 3%, so it is very cheap for her.

> and have you eaten fruits from saved casings?

Yes, but I would never recommend it.  :smile:    (I haven't had any bad experiences, but that doesn't mean that I wont.)

If you are not 100% that it is cobweb I would chuck it.  No reason to throw it away... toss it out in the backyard somewhere (away from where kids might play) and wait to see if fruit shows up.  A lot of times nature will balance things out for you and what was lost becomes saved.
