    I am pretty sure it is Choaenephora Wet Rot and what I read says there is no cure. I have read that another fungus called trichoderma will eat it but its a slow process. What do you think? The tricho that reportedly eats it is a subvariety called Verde, so am I about to be in the fungus growing business one way or another?
