Casing Contam??
    #718126 - 07/02/02 01:28 PM (21 years, 9 months ago)

I have a spot of green in a casing tray. Looks like the mycelin fell, and became green. 1/2 the size of a dime. I know contams R green & sometimes grayish. But my mycelin network looks healthy in both my casings, except for this green spot. I have no access to a cam, so I cant post a pic.

What should I do? Throw out the whole casing before it spreads to the second casing? Cut the green spot out w/ a sterilized knife? Leave it be? Or maybe break up the whole casing, remove the green portion & surrounding area, mix w/ pasteurized cow dung (got some), and place in a new casing. The pasteurized dung/casing mixing into a dung verm case?

Any help would be appreciated.
I need to do something fast!!!

I cut out the greenish peice of mycelin (about 4 mm x 5 mm). Swabbed the spot w/ a bleach/water mix. Changed the perlite. And placed the casing back in the terr. Now I will be just watching it like a hawk, for any other signs of contam problems.

i dunno about just 'swabbing' it with bleachwater,
the green contam burrows deep into casings & cakes.
you prolly just scratched the surface.
a total immersion is your best bet,
and you'll prolly need to repeat it a few timews to get it all.

You should definitely seperate those two casings. If one is still healthy it is likely to get contaminated from the other.

That's what I thought. Here I am though, 3 days later, with 2 inch mushies on my PR casing. Lots of pins on the messie case, only 4 mushies growing as of now. The PR are supposed to be dominant so that's what the diff in size and pins I imagine.

The contam seems to be completely gone. I have been watching it like crazy for any kind of change in color/smell. Nothing but progress.
