These tubs are Mazatepec from the last grow I did that didn't turn out so well. I took a few prints from what little the cakes yielded and made some syringes and LC's. I mixed up some popcorn jars and innoculated them and then put them into tubs cases with just coco coir (from the petstore).


I've got some good pinning, but the tub in the top left looks like it may be contaminated. I'm going to check with a cotton swab in a bit. I'm curious about the bottom left as well. Does anyone think that it doesn't look right? I've never seen cobweb mold, so I'm a bit anxious about the way it looks. The two right tubs are looking ok and I hope they last.

I'm keeping an eye on it. It's been like that for a few days. I'm not so sure it is cobweb, but again, I don't think I've ever seen cobweb mold. I checked the other tub that look a little greenish in a spot by wetting a q-tip with peroxide and swabbing a little area. Nothing came off onto the swab. I'll just keep monitoring closely. Should have nice fruits soon! :headbang:

you can dilute it as much as 20:1 and still effective

Thanks so much. I'll spray them down tonight. Is cobweb dangerous at all? Or just a hindrance?

What about to human health? I read a post somewhere once where it was said that cobweb mold wasn't a hazard to humans. ie, you could still pick the fruits and consume them with no worry to personal health.

I sprayed them down last night with a pretty strong dilution of peroxide. They seem to be ok. Thanks again.

:bow:
