What's going on to my scoby?

I’m new in the group , I began to work on kamboucha and at my first attemp I got this kind of weird scoby, I think its contaminated with Kahm yeast can’t say, any one kwno how to do to avoid this, they were absolutely fine for a week and then I got this!

I Also got this are they mold?

hey @noha3 welcome to the forum. I got those shapes and yeast growths too sometimes. It never really impeded on the result though. It just looks a bit funky, but when drying it mostly disappears. So I’m not sure if it’s something that needs to be avoided at all costs.

Did you try drying those pieces?
