    Hi,hello !
    Tankeshwar, My name is Cristiane and I don’t know if I am doing right to ask you this, I am not anstudent any more, I am just a house wife.
    I search the internet for answers but I never found any, so I am risking ask you, if you think it is not aproprieted just disregard it an do not take me wrong, sorry.
    My question is about garlic and mold.
    I am very fearful of coack roaches, but I hate poisoning my house too, so I discouver that the roaches hate garlic, than I got lots of glass botles with large openings and I put in it minced garlic and water, I put around the house in corners and near to places I’ve seen roaches( I’ve traveled and my husband toke care of the house by his self , he hate clean the kitchen) .
    The thing is , grow on top of the garlic, some very weird black mold, not all the botles but some of them, I am puzled because I never saw it before, it kind of foat on the water and under it are some pieces of the minced garlic.
    This mold is so thick loks like leather, black leather or black mushrooms.
    Can you tell me what is this ?
    I am sorry if it is not right, I’ve subscribed to your site but some thing went wrong and I just got this place to write.
    Thank you very much and congratulations for all you achievements !

      Dear Cristiane
      Thank you so much for your valuable time and sending us this unique problem/comment to solve. I read your comment and i liked your enthusiasm and the efforts you have done to get rid of cockroaches. Instead of using pesticides, you are trying something organic, that sounds great. Did you get rid of cockroaches? Regarding the growth of fungi, there are various types of fungi which can grow on such conditions and can give black colored colonies. They may be any of
      Aspergillus,Penicillium, Fusarium or Cladosporium or any others too. Mycologist have to study its colony morphology, pigementation, arrangements of hyphae and spores (by microscopy) to identify exactly the name of the mold/fungi involved in your case. Sorry, i could not give you exact answer, if you are keen to know that species, i request you to visit nearby laboratory where fungal culture facilities is available, they will help you in this regard. Wishing you great time ahead,thank you for the question and the wish.
