2 bottles have this weird cloudiness around certain seeds. Spreads asymmetrically in the medium, preferentially in one plane. When it hits the surface it spreads out. Very slow growing whatever it is. Very different from the standard greenish mould or the slimy bacterial stuff which are much faster growing. I'm going to keep an eye on it to see if I have to re-sterilize and replate.

I've had the usual white mold. I've had the slimies on re-plates. Couple of times weird green stuff (algae?). Recently an explosion of white cobwebby stuff twice. And now the weirdest. Rhodotorula slooffiae, Ralstonia Solanacearum?

Any new succulent success? I'm in the process of setting up to try to clone some hawarthia from the flower stock. I'll update how it goes.
It's interesting with the weird contamination. I had some begonia seed from Brazil recently that kept getting a weird slime I've never seen before. It was causing one to decline. I was able to save it, but the begonia is growing really strangely since. Really small and clumpy compared to others of the same species.
