Ah, I didn't know that. I may be misting a bit too much!Better aeration. It sounds like the humidity is too high, causing mold to form. Periodically removing and baking the log will get the moisture out of it, but the root cause is that there isn't enough air flow to keep the wood from getting moldy.
Nope there isnt really a way to remove the log when misting as I mist daily. It will stress my T way too much.Is there any way to mist but not mist the log? Remove it while misting, perhaps? This way you could keep things suitably humid, without the mold risk. It sounds like the moisture is seeping into the log and making it go moldy.
For the record, if it's green, it's not a mould.Hey I have an A. avic. in a 1 gallon jar with a giant piece of drift wood in there that has only been in there for a week and is now partially green and I was wondering how do get the dang mold off of it.
Thanks for your time.
Very interesting. I ended up boiling the piece of wood and it looks brand new now.For the record, if it's green, it's not a mould.
Moulds are fungi. They eat the wood to survive.
Green = plant. You got an algae there. It'll ONLY survive when it's wet. There's also a good chance that it's harmless, although an indicator that you're adding too much water.
Cooking, microwaving, and the like should kill it off, but I also wouldn't be too shocked if it came back. Algae have some pretty neat little survival tricks. They tie their DNA in knots so that radiation can't get it, and the like. Cook it, and reduce your water addition.
