Blue mold on rotting coconut

I bought a green coconut for relishing its water, but landed up throwing in dustbin as blue mold had grown on its top.The coconut had rotten either in storage or due to prevailing rainy weather.

Took a cello tape and fixed the mold on a slide to observe it under a foldscope. I could see a dense mat of hyphae and chains of conidia hanging out on conidiophores.
