Re: 1 to 4 ratio 3% peroxide solution-to-water too much?
    #67987 - 12/10/99 12:16 AM (17 years, 1 day ago)

I thought the latest craze was to use straight H202, at least that's what I heard via Ryche's post last week. I've been spraying my casings (the casing mixture)with it since last week. Everything seems to be going fine. Now that the mycelium is poking through and I've deep scratched, I'm not sure if it's still a good idea but I've been doing it anyway to keep the mixture moist.

I would recommend that you search the forums.
This question has been diskussed on a weekly basis for over six months now.
Geee, doesn't anyone do any research before asking questions nowadays.

I used a 1 to 10 ratio (peroxide to water) and my cubies are flushing like crazy, with no signs of contamination.

Of course, I was just guessing on the mixture.

peace,
Goat

I think a 1:4 ratio would be over doing it. I would try the 1:10 ratio like Goat said.

I use 1/20 ratio to control the cobweb mold.

Definately let us know the results of your peroxide usage, Cogito.
Check out this site: http://members.aol.com/PeroxyMan/
I think I read that he uses straight 3% solution, but it's hard to tell because he doesn't want to give out too much information because he's trying to sell a book on this very topic. He says he's got his contam. rate down to 1%, though. That's pretty good! Mine's closer to 20%.

I read a post from Ryche a few days ago and straight H2O2 kills spores but is perfectly safe for mycelium, pins, and shrooms.

1 to 20 is the standard dillution rate if you don't know what your doing. Peroxy man recomends different ratios for different things (agar, spawn, fruiting sub etc). Straight H2O2 should only be used to kill a contam when you see it. If using the standard 1 to 20 dillution, you shouldn't see any contams though.
Then again, if you have proper air exchange you shouldn't see many either.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Yeah that's what I've heard but...
My casings are now showing signs of cobweb and they are all getting direct ventilation via cool mist. When I say direct I mean direct. The air flow is blowing on them. I've been spraying with straight H202 since last week when they had no cobweb. Now they do and it goes away when I spray but keeps coming back. A couple of my shrooms have a greenish/blue spotty fuzz stuff growing on them. I'm thinking that's from the H202 being sprayed on them...I hope.
Anyway, my point is that in my case, cobweb came even though I was spraying with H202 as a precaution and now that I have it, it only stops it for that day or so...even though I drench my casing with it.

Hey cognito are you filtering the air used to make your mist? If you arn't then you could be introducing the cobweb mold back into your system.

I'm using a cool mist unit. No filter besides the one on it.
Should I do something in addition to this?

I have my cool mist inside a box fitted with a 12x12 quality, but not hepa, filter. it works well, and fits nicely next to my new box.

yeah, I don't know about h2o2, it seems safe to me, because out of sheer paranoia I bombed my SoS casings with pure 3%. I'm certain now that was probably just mycelium and not cobweb mold. Anyhow, I got a sizeable first flush and now, a few days later, i'm seeing some new pins. So, I wouldn't worry too much, although somebody in Advanced is working on a tek to keep the count of aerobic bacteria up in order to defeat contams, and I think he also stated that too much H2O2 could lower those counts. So I guess I've turned my chilluns into H2O2 addicts. :smile:
