    Is this anything that I need to be worried about? starting a DSM tank, and the wood is starting to show these white patches in some spots. Is there anything I can treat it with or should I be concerned?

    Thanks

    Moist wet conditions are great for fungus........so it is normal, it'll go away when add water, you can add excel or H2O2 with a paint brush etc.
    Careful not roast the plants.

    Thanks Tom, was getting worried there.

    On roasting, humidity is ~92%. I mist 3-4 times a day. should the leaves be kept constantly moist? I could put a cheap humidifier in the tank and cycle it every hour or so. Excess standing water gets sucked out by an aqua-lifter after misting.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Just leave the lid slightly open, but wait till the plants are semi rooted.
