Default Moss / mold growing?

Hey, I have a natural cork tree hind in my tank (see my recent pictures thread "2 weeks later" to see it...

Anyway, theres a green substance that has started appering on one side, will this be a problem to my leo? If I need to wash how and whats safe to use?

if you take it out and soak it in water for a day or so, then let it dry out and bake it in the oven for 30 mins at 200 degrees. it should kill off any mould spores
