I don't keep mine on mulch until they are at least a year old for the very reason you mentioned. I like the long-fibered spag. moss to "start" them on. It is easier to work with because it tends to dry quicker so it doesn't allow any fungus to grow. It also however can become saturated if "over-sprayed". All things in moderation.
