Can be anything, even that you dont do anything *wrong*..
Maybe you had spores under your fingers, maybe they got inside when you opend the lid, maybe maybe

It is not more then cheap guessing for the people here what has happened.

Usually you will not get contamination if they were fully colonized when you put them in your fruiting chamber. Are you sure that they were fully colonized on the inside and outside?

And are you sure it is a green mold? When I first started, I made the mistake of thinking that the blue bruising of mycelium was green mold. I did this several times before I finally realized that I was trashing perfectly good cakes.

I found my colonized cakes VERY resistant!!

- I dunk in tapwater
- I handle them with bare hands, not even always washed (to take pics, to dunk etc)
- the lid was openend many times a day, in a non HEPA environment
- spray with tapwater,
- incoming air is not filtered

Not any of my colonized cakes ever contammed...
