Oh no! Why would that have happened? Are they salvageable or will you have to discard them completely now?

I've never done Kombucha although I had a housemate long ago who had something similar to this although it was made of pottery rather than glass.

Further research says it may be salvagable by washing the kombucha scoby and acidifying the starter to help prevent mold from taking root.

How are you going to acidify? Lemon juice?

I dumped them. I'll have to start again. One site said maybe too much humidity (I had a lid on them for the first couple days, after which I put paper towel only). Also they were in a cupboard over the sink maybe I need to move them.

I had them fermenting in mason jars, nothing fancy. Though that continuous fermentation by taking only half process is a really good idea.

I've had the best luck with cheesecloth (a double or quadruple layer) for the duration, and a dry warm room, I always used my furnace room. Hope this helps!
