Casing Question...
« on: January 16, 2010, 02:42:24 PM »

Hey I was just checking out my casing and I noticed alittle white fuzz forming on the top. Its very thin and almost foamy looking. I was wondering if this was cobweb or just mycelium growing. Ill get picks up in a couple hours. Thanks.

It's kinda hard to see what is exactly going on but I'm pretty sure it's cobweb. But if I'm wrong and I do mist, will it hurt my casing?

ImAFungi,
  You're right,... It's kind of hard to make anything out, But,,... before proceeding with any "radical" actions, I would attempt a light misting, to see if the growth that you see can be knocked back.  As I say,... Light misting.
  You will know within 24 hours if you will have to step up to treatments, such as peroxide or bleach diluted.
  Honestly, I don't see anything crucial happening.

yeah, its very possible thats cobweb. i'd spray some peroxide on them (2%). works for me..
BTW, don't worry about cobweb to much. i have eaten shrooms grown on cobweb, no problem.. :ph34r:

Well that's glad to hear that it isn't a serious problem. I had a misting bottle with 1/10 ratio of peroxide to water. So if that doesn't not back that cobweb should I move to straight peroxide? Thanks.

IamAFungi,
  I am hesitant to advise a 100% peroxide treatment, though an established mycelia network could probably withstand the blow,...   Perhaps to increase the mix by 50% at max.
  But, as Fattrout stated, you can get past the cobwebs as far as consumption, and your casings will generally "outgrow" the cobweb if the FAE is constant.   So why worry too much??..
  Life is Good,....      -_-

I just thought Fattrout was suggesting it. Otherwise I would have never thought to treat with 100% peroxide. My bad, I misunderstood. Its been 6 days since I cased my amazonians. So I'm hoping any day I will see mycelium peek through the casing. So should I just wait till I put it in the FC to mess with the FAE since the foil is on the casing until then? Life is also good :mellow: besides the cobweb.

maybe i should have been clearer. when i said 2%, i meant (2% peroxide) in a water mix. i put about 1 to 2 OZs in a full water bottle... ^_^

Haha that makes sense. I have never heard of 100% treatment of anything as far as mushrooms go. Thanks for the advice Fattrout and Malabar  :mellow:.
