Dragon Fruit seeds White Fuzz

I'm not sure how to explain it or why it only happens with Dragon fruit seeds but usually after my dragon fruit seeds show signs of sprouting i see white fuzz all around the seed area and I grow them by just placing the seeds on the soil. It only happens with DF seeds and I've only seen it happen with some of my prickly pear seeds ONCE but vanished shortly after it made a full sprout. Is it the roots or some type of mold? it looks liek a extremely fine you can see it's ONLY on the seeds...

I took the plastic wrap off and let the fan hit it and it went away within 20 mins.
