Flowy stuff growing on driftwood

In the absence of my BNP who moved into the big tank, my driftwood in the hospital tank is growing flowy stuff on it. Is this bad? There's a lot. Click image for larger version

Na it will go away on its own or do what I did just take it out and run a clean scrub brush over it. It never came back on mine.

Give it a smell. If it smells awful then the wood is too fresh, and is full of sap. If that's the case it needs boiled for ages, or left in the sun for a year or two. If there's no smell, it's likely fine.
