    Yes there is a difference. Fungi and Bacterias can be beneficial or harmful, where-as mold I don't beleive is ever beneficial.

    ....................................................Ya know, I know the difference but I can't really explain it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I love Mold! You probably eat it every day if you like cheese!

    Mold and Fungi are two very nondiscript words that are used for verious things. Try it this way: All Mold is fungi but not all fungi is mold! does that make it clear as mud?

    Fungi is a Kingdom, like kingdom Plantae (plants) or kingdom animalia (animals) so gilled mushrooms, pollypores, jelly fungi, shelf fungi, true molds, etc. are all classified as fungi...

    What do you have your seed planted in? Is the seed planted on the surface?
    Is your seed still in the pods or do you have nice small black seeds?

    Mold will somtimes grow on the surface of seeds without hurting anything. Make sure you have some sort of air circulation. I usually plant byblis in a peat - sand mix that has a touch more sand then peat.

    I don't know if that helps. Give us a bit more info on your set up and growing conditions.
