depends on how big the spot is, usually h202 solution will hold it back, but the stuff spreads fast

Definitely in the suspicious category. You may have success with various methods; salt, peroxide, but whatever you do, the sooner you do it the better.

You also can scoop out that portion with sterile spoon and fill with new sterilized casing material.
Well besides what others said..... Give it hell !!!!!

Sorry but it looks like that's a case of cobweb mold infection. Give it more light, more air exchanges and mist it with a h2o2/h2o solution.
Do it ASAP.
Btw, this is not a problem but next time try posting a new thread :wink:
