In my enclosure i put aquarium fake rock with cavity as place to make funnel .
Inside it i can see tiny water droplets and white fuzz mold . Spider (eratigena atrica) did not made funnel inside , but near it . ( on right side in picture) .
Is mold bad for her ? Should I worry ?
i`m thinking about removing that cavity rock and replacing it with some larger stones.
In enclosure i have only substrate (almost dust dry) those withe stones and some fake plants .
i did mist inside very little .

Spiders sometimes have different ideas than us about what a good home is lol.

This is late, did you wind up replacing the cave?

I think mold is often harmless unless it gets excessive. I've read reports of the spores potentially getting in the book lungs and causing issues but I'm unsure how true that is.

How's the spider?

Being you I wouldn't had put inside all of those rocks/stones/whatever, but only dry substrate, a water dish, fake leaves and a old good piece of cork bark. Just me, I'm not saying that those caused the mold or else.
