If you have mature shrooms breaking there veil in there then its probably just SPORES that fell from the shrooms. If it wipes off real easy then its spores.

What kind of perlite did you use? Cheaper perlites have some potting soil and peat moss mixed in sometimes. Maybe there was some peat or potting soil dust in there and you just couldn't see it until you got the perlite wet.

I took a look at the bag of Perlite I have, and it's from Scotts. Didn't say anything about having potting soil in it although, it said you could add it to soil to help keep the moisture up. I even took a look in the bag and all the perlite pebbles are white. Here I took a picture of what I'm talking about. These black dots on the perlite nearly cover every top perlite pebble but not enough to cover all of the pebbles till you can't see the white. Here I took a picture:

I don't know what's causing it or if it's a threat of contamination? That's the only thing i'm worrying about. Thx for the reply. :-D
