White fuzz on plants

Does anyone know what this white stuff is? I've noticed it on a few stems here and there and now on the roots of a floating plant.

I don't know what it is. I've never seen it before. But if I saw that on a terrestrial plant I'd say it's a sporangiophore (the hairy bit on a fungus). If it's that, I wouldn't worry unless it starts doing something adverse to the plant.

Oh, a fungus would make sense. Thank you!
