I just started a new planted tank, are these algae growing on the plant?

Hey all, as per title. I just started a 21L planted tank 2 days ago. I planted some littorela uniflora, and one of it seems to have this weird hairy stuff growing on it. Does algae grow that fast? It has been less than 3 days, and the light I'm using is only 0.75W.

various internet sources say it is a cold water plant. What temp is your tank water?

Ah damn. Probably 27-30 degrees range, tropical climate without cooler. Do you know what those hairy things are?
