Hi! I have kept cactus and succulent plants most of my life but I have never actually grown one from a seed. A few days ago, I decided to plant my first cactus seed. It's in a small plastic container in my bathroom along with a few of my other plants. It stays around 75-78 degrees in there. Today I noticed a bunch of white "threads" coming from a seed and another clump of the white stuff. I wasn't sure if this was normal or if it could possibly be mold. Please let me know if you can! And if I'm doing something wrong, please let me know so I can try again! Thanks!

Is Mold allright. Try watering with 1 cup 3% peroxide to 1 gal water. And change location.
