Hi Randy,

The blue-green mold is probably Penicillium or Trichoderma. Both are not
true plant pathogens but they like eating freshly decayed organic material.
Your bulbs were probably shipped before they were thoroughly dried and the
mold started growing during shipping. You can peel off the old bulb
covering with the mold if you want, but I suspect that once you plant them,
soil microbes will out-compete these molds.
