Its not necessary but it sure does help alot. Use a 50/50 solution of water and H2o2. Or just 100% H2o2

Spraying peroxide into your terrarium doesn't harm the mycelium or fruits?

GT,

the 3% solution we get from the store will not harm the Mycelium in this strength....its a very commonly used thing to control contam outbreaks.

I'm sorry to be a pest- I just want to be sure before I go spraying my beauties...

I understand that you can spray non-diluted 3% peroxide on your casings to get rid of contams and that your mycelium will recover after several days. (In my own experience, however, the mycelium didn't recover... but that's probably something I did wrong...)

But you guys are saying that, without the presence of contams, it's ideal to do your everyday misting (if you are indeed misting every day) with a 50/50 solution of H20 and H202?

My fear is that it would slow down mycelial growth.

Thanks,

GT

Hey GT,
Yes, peroxide is very helpful in killing spores of contams (shrooms too, but that isn't so helpful :smile: ). I use about a 1/15 mix of 3% h2o2 to water for my spray bottles. Here's a good link for you too look at if you're wondering about using peroxide to help you grow: http://hometown.aol.com/RushWayne/Perox_Mushrooms.html
Check it out :smile:
