Default Brought one in

I brought one of my prize nanners indoors (black thai)
Its been indoors for about two weeks now. Now I know that its common for p-stems to get a little mold on them, but this has a little bit more than average. Is it because of the tempature change? The indoor / outdoor change? I can wipe 2/3 of it off with a wet rag. Should this be a concern? Any information would be greatly appreciated
Keep shoveling on the potash till the ground bleeds

High Humidity, Lack of Ventilation, Lack of Light? not an expert but mold grows where this factors are present. I bought a Giant Red Dragon fruit took about a week to get home from online nursery and the plant was rooting at the base with mold. I guess the lack of ventilation and no light coming into the box did the job I had to cut it and root it again, thankfully is alive and growing roots but with bananas I have no experience.
