Anyone got any advice on avoiding molds on my cakes? It's my first time growing and i started with 7 cakes and now I'm down to 5 because of had to throw sum out due to this green mold. Just wondering if there's any tips on how to avoid it
Don’t think he cased them @mushmouth will that not make the diffrence with flush’s considering there is only lime in the casing ?
i have prety much the same setup but case my tubs and see three to four flushes from them .
I hope for you it's only metabolites of mushroom fighting bacterial contamination. This is why I'll continue to sterilize my freaking substrate everytime instead of bucket tek or pasteurizing. To know for sure, you need a discerning eye and a working microscope.
You would look for the conidia of mycogyne on your slides.
And keep us posted, if this blows up, i wanna see it!
Thought it was ok. My other 2 tubs don't seem to be having any trouble with too much moisture. It was all the same batch of coir verm that went into all three. Maybe there was moisture content at bottom of bucket.
I dumped the water out of tub initially because it was pretty bad. All that is left is like an 1/8 of an inch. Hope the remaining will dissipate.
