Whilst monitoring the growth of my physarum polycephalum culture, I noted the formation of an unidentified green mold. It does not seem to be impacted the growth of Molly (the physarum polycephalum) however is visibly apparent. Attached is a photo. Does anyone know what kind of mold this is and any information on it?

It looks like cladosporium - it's common and will grow on pretty much anything. They're mostly harmless. Physarum is very tolerant of fungi and will just grow around them but if you've got mould you'll probably also have yeasts which are more of an issue so I'd divide your culture to make a spare
