aspenentomology Posted September 1, 2020 Report Share Posted September 1, 2020 A while back I made a post about how I found some Bolitherus cornutus and I wanted to have a colony. Unfortunately, however, their fungus conk was completely overrun with mold. I even created an enclosure with lots of ventilation to mitigate the problem, but it was too late, so I was forced to let them go. Last night I found more in the same spot, and I want things to go better this time. That's why I have to ask: How do you people not get massive mold infestations? Any time I've ever tried to keep a fungus feeding species, including Neomida bicornis, a Diaperis sp., and of course, B. cornutus, the same thing has happened. And from what I've read on this species, they prefer high humidity and limited ventilation, which seems like a perfect recipe for mold. So how can I avoid mold this time around?
