Bleach and a large casing
    #735649 - 07/10/02 07:02 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I innoculated 10 gallons of straw with one gallon of eq spawn. I always save a little spawn to sprinkle on top. Well it has been 10 days and everything is nice and white with a few green spots on the top. I cut them out and sprayed the area with 3% bleach water. The next morning the sides of my casing were blue. Its in a clear container. Did something go wrong or is this normal when using bleach.

Isn't 3% too much bleach?.. you might have hurt the mycelium.
I believe it's 1 cup of bleach for every 10 gal. water.
1 cup= 0.0625 gal. liquid.
So if you were to put 1 cup for every 1 gallon of water. You would have 6.25% bleach.
( Divide 6.25 by 10 )
Therefore you would really need 0.625% of bleach, or maybe 0.95% of bleach for a strong solution...
It also depends on what brand of bleach you are using though because some brands are diluted.
Correct me if I'm wrong...

3% is way too strong.
are you sure you figured right ?
it's about 6% straight out of the bottle,
so 3% would be 50/50 bleach and water,
way too strong.
should be 1 part bleach to 100 water,
making it about .06%
