    Purple mold while germinating?

    I looked at my germinating tray today, and found 1/4" purple spots. Disappointed, thinking it is mold. Opened it up and found seeds have germinated. But this purple stuff, never seen it before. Is it mold?

    I've never seen purple mold before, any chance of a pic? What have you germinated the seed on? Maybe that's contaminated.

    My opinion is this mold has nothing to do with the tobacco seeds. I believe the source contamination is the water, the paper towel or the spores are simply airborne.

    In that it's growing on or near the tobacco seeds, is purely coincidental.

    I would agree with Don, I doubt it would be the seed. Also as your sprouting them on white kitchen towel its going to show every detail up.
    I would remove the germinated seeds and some of the healthy looking seed and bin the rest.

    I will agree with Don, but its strange that the mold grew exactly where the seeds germinated.
