should i give up?
    #934313 - 10/05/02 12:52 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

i am just about to start the pinning stage, my compost is grown almost totally over, but now i am noticing some small like 1 mm patches of green... i'm figuring this is penicillin.... what can i do? should i just chuck everything or try to take them out? put baking soda on it maybe?

It is in your best intersest to get rid of any molds as soon as you see them starting. Try to even catch em before they get mature and sporalate. Green molds usually start off as a white mass/fuzz that grows really fast before it turns green. Doesnt take long for it to go green tho.

All you are doing by keeping moldy substrate around is compromising future grows by upping the mold spore count.

Green is a very hardy contam, good luck fighting it off. If it gets below the casing layer its definatly over.
