What causes that?
Mold spores.

What are the powers of mold, especially green?
Major. Eliminate, irradicate and clean immediatly. Hopefully you wont lose anything else in the chamber.

You did not have overlay..you had green mold. Green mold starts as a white mycelium as well...the green is what you see when it starts to sportulate.

When I first started doing casings I got a lot of green mold and in almost every case it was caused by making the casing too wet, seems the green mold loves excessive moisture. It seems that even if you sterilize your casing mix and start out with a clean substrate you will still end up with cob web or green mold if too wet. It took me several casings to learn what field capacity really means. This is probably how a lot of new guys screw up their casings. Another point is that most of us start out with cakes and cakes love moisture but your starting out with a fully colinized cake which just won't contaminate as easily, with casings you don't have that same margin of error regarding excessive moisture.

i don't believe in bottom casing layers myself... it's just more for the mycelium to have to colonize.

green mold starts out white and then turns green, as scatman said. get it out of there ASAP.
