    So about 2-3 weeks ago i was hving some mold problems with my sling enclosures, and i added more holes, and microwaved the new substrate. The old mold was kind of white a nd fuzzy, but yesterday i loked in the same enclosures and saw tiny green specs, completely differrent than before.

    Does it need even more ventilation? Different substrate? Help?

    there are mold spores EVERYWHERE - you can microwave something one day and it will be exposed to spores again moments later. if you're getting mold, you need more ventilation and/or less water.

    Keep in mind that even slings do not need to be kept "swampy". Just mist a corner every few days.

    Ya, i dont soak them at all tho. It must be ventilation i guess.... i feel bad i have to dig them out of their awesome burrows again

    if it's punctual - just remove the mold, and wait. Maybe it won't reappear.
