Stagnant casing myc q.
    #872222 - 09/09/02 12:01 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

A friend has his casings in Tupperware w/ an air pump for exchange and pitcher tek humidification. He let one of the casing surfaces get like 90% colonized, the other 70% or so, and has had them set up for pinning (upper 60's to low 70's @ 90 to 95% RH) for eight days, and has not seen any further myc growth, nor pins, to speak of. There is no standing water in the bottom of the chamber, as he has a dry perlite layer to absorb condensation and the like, but does this sound like a contam problem? As always, any help is greatly appreciated  :laugh:. As an amendment, the casing layer has pulled away from the sides (which will be patched very soon), but appears moist w/ tiny droplets all over the myc.

If lighting is adequate, I recommend waiting if you don't see any obvious, external signs of contamination or strange smells.

There are no unpleasant smells, but (removes resin from ears) I forgot to mention that some suspect gray fuzziness was spotted and removed w/ no further sightings. Could the whole thing be just screwed underneath?

Wait and see. If it's contaminated, it will soon be self-evident.
