Question

BleepBlorp123

So 8 days ago I brought my mono tub into fruiting conditions. I followed mush zombies mono tub tek and everything was PERFECT up until the 3rd day when I started noticing this weird white blotch in the center of my casing. It was small maybe the size of a quarter and near it was a faint outline of mold starting near the cobweb. It was a very light green and was the start of trichoderma in assuming. Well I scooped both spots out and starting using 3% h202 and was self fanning from then on. Also I wanna note that I used a box fan on setting 1 and had it aimed toward the monotub for its FAE. A few days after that I noticed trich forming in the center but was still small, no other spot had green so I scooped it out again and kept using hydrogen peroxide. So yesterday I decided to put a little salt on the top of the casing and use  half hydrogen peroxide and water for misting. I still have the box fan pointing toward the mono tub but I have the box lid slightly pryed open to get more air exchange. It's been a few days and I don't smell anything anymore. Can anybody guide me from here? Im really trying my best not to lose this monotub... I don't have any signs of contamination right now and also should I keep the lid open and manually fan or can I shut it and still have the fan point towards it?

There isn't any cobweb in there bud...

The white you're referring to, is probably just mycelium poking through the casing layer (completely normal)...

Cobweb looks like just what it's called... cobweb/spider web...

If you see white poking up through the casing layer, STOP SCOOPING IT OUT!!!

If it turns green, then throw the tub out...

You can't really do anything to save the tub once trichoderma starts growing...

But like I said, you're probably not dealing with any kind of mold... you're probably just being too paranoid or overthinking/stressing too much...

And also, keep the lid closed... just make sure your casing layer isn't dry... give it a good misting and close the lid!

If you see something questionable, take a picture FIRST, and post it on here so we can help identify it...

Do not just assume that you have mold...

Because like my grandmother told me as a child... "When you "assume", you make an ass out of YOU and ME!

If you do have  obtained Web , our need to slow down on misting and increase  air flow.

i dont see anything either but spraying with peroxide that much all the time probably isnt a good idea, i would sugest for next time maybe adding a little under one cup of peroxide per gallon of water used to hydrate/pasteurize the sub. it allows for the myc to grab hold of the sub enough to have more teratory than most tams if they exist. ive been using pretty poor sterile tech and i havent seen a tam using peroxide this way. im still pretty green tho

      After mixing together a bunch of wbs jars with substrate,I underestimated how much it would make, I've been trying to do away with the big monotubs because it's hard to hide so I've been doing bags ,well I ran out of spawn bags so i put the remainder of my spawn in 4 one gallon ziplock bags that i cut a hole in and taped tyvlek to. The problem is the substrate is 4 inches thick in these one gallon bags . I let them colonize for 12 days, during the spawn run the mycelium went nuts , it even grew through the tyvlek patch , its strong and healthy looking growing up the sides of the bags , and it's already pinning. The thing is  I cant  possibly see how it could work with the bags being so full of substrate , I was just kind of rushed and didnt want to waste anything so I threw it in bags not really expecting it to work . The bags are so healthy looking I hate to throw them out , but I'm not sure what to do . Any suggestions? Two of my bags are just verm and the other two are cmc, coir ,and verm... any help would be greatly appreciated ... thank you

      I just ordered the 23 quart presto pressure cooker. Does anyone use this type for sterilizing jars or bags? I’m thrilled that I can start doing my own substrates now but I’ve never used a PC before is it pretty easy?

      Pulled a gallon bag of substrate out of the freezer.   I'm going to spawn some of the Jalisco jars this next week.   See what happens.

      So today was a busy day! Transfered ropey strands from the fully colonized GT and KSSS bags to Petri dishes, really hope that some beautiful ropey myc comes of it.  Dycorotic and rizomorphic growth is beautiful.Just a quick peek of a Thai strand going into the dish before we finished up there and went on to start setting up the tubs to spawn to substrate 1 to 3 ratio. This is the Golden Teacher just placed and not spread out yet, ready to be foil wrapped and moved into incubation for 10 days.Volcano at around 10 days and will be getting the casing put over as well today along with two others to be shown later on this day. A wonderful picture of the inside of the greenhouse with what we have started and growing bigger everyday lol. And the final picture showing the humidifier and fan in working order. Would always be welcome to any ideas or different ways to look at things in getting them to grow better! Thank you
