Why does everyone overlook the easy way of controlling mold. Simply add Calcium Carbonate (Lime), and Calcium sulfate(gypsum) to your casing. A ratio of 1 Part lime :one part gypsum: 10 parts casing will give you a dramatic decrease in green mold and other contaminates. Also, hepa filters are also good ideas.

Thank you psyconaut, I have been singing a similar song for a while in my own mycological learning process. Tricoderma lives in the 4-5.5 ph range mushrooms prefer a more alkaline environment, therefore if your casings are at the proper ph level and not completly water-loged, tricoderma should not be a problem.

thanks for the advice- though ive tried to use lime, and oyster shell to no avail. exactly what type of 'lime' do you use? non dolomitic right? would that be considered 'hydrated lime?' i tried sprinkling baking soda and 'horticultural lime' and oyster shell over my green mold and it simply doesnt seem to work! but im thinkin, if you can find something that will eat the green mold and co-exist with the mush fungi OR just make the mush fungi immune, life would be awesome!

Calicium helps, but green mold is tuff.

THIS WORKS 100% of the time:

Bring dry casing ingredients up to desired moisture content with a 5% vodka and H2O solution. Let sit for five days and then apply as normal.

By doing this you are enhacing the soil with mushrooom friendly bacteria. These bacteria will keep out any lower molds but PROMOTE pinning....

Tr it! It works freaking wonders!

Shroomanity>I have always used calcium carbinate to controll surface contamination of tricoderma, I have never used lime as a surface cure only as an additive to casings. You just need to make sure that you spread out the calcium carbinate around a much larger area than the visable contamintation on the surface or it will simply "pop' up on the other side of the baking soda. I hope this could be some help to you. Also I do something that others here disagree with however I prefer to sterilize my casing material before using it, this has not proven to be a problem with p-cubies but it is a problem with other species of higher fungi.
