Not so happy New Year - green mold on cakes
    #7819893 - 01/01/08 02:23 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

This would be the second flush for these cakes. The first flush turned out really well.

Clearly one of the cakes is covered in green mold and from what I've read on other posts this is not salvageable. My assumption is that I will have to ditch them. You can see in one of the pix, there is some greeen mold beginning to develop - would this cake be salvageable?

The other three cakes in the terrarium all look fine right now, but I have no idea if they have been infected as well and I am simply not seeing the obvious signs yet.

I have read something about using an H202 spray but don't know what the ratio of water to peroxide is.

Any thoughts, recommendations, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is that a layer of dry vermiculite, maybe thats what brought in the contam with it. Also H202 is only used for Cobwed mold, and it is already diluted when you buy it from the store hence 3% H202.

Yup, that's dry vermiculite, and I didn't toast it, so it very well could be the culprit. It's trash correct? Any thoughts, on the other cakes being contaminated by the green mold? I'm a first time grower, so this is all new to me.
I'm bummed, b/c we were doing so well initially..

Thanks for your feedback.

Yeah the one with green mold should have been thrown out already :P I believe it can release spores or something which could be an ugly mess down the road. Also try taking a 2 liter bottle or something and making some mini terrariums for your other cakes(search for poor mans terrarium). Add some perlite to the bottom and then watch for signs of green mold. You might want to empty out your FC then Scrub it down with rubbing alcohol.

Those are to be binned before they spew anymore spores everywhere, i would spray some bleach solution on the to keep the spores on the cake then dump.

I wouldn't blame the verm, its non nuitricious, mould normally wont grow on it. I suspect that the cake was already infected and it just hasn't shown itself till now once the mycelium was weaker, just a guess though.

Remember that mould mycelium is white too, when u see green, that's it sporolating.

Theres nothing much u can do apart from ditch them, clean out your fruiting chamber and get on with your next cakes (or casing should you choose to try)

You can bake verm in the oven, personaly i have not had any problems using it straight out the bag.

Dispose of the cakes that show signs of green mold very carefully and keep on growing the others. Once they are all through, a good clean of the FC and surrounding areas with bleach (or bleach and vinegar even better) would be a good idea.
