Seedlings and fungus/mold?
Posted by Arianne from Massachusetts on 2007-04-04 10:45:00

I'm a first-time gardener, and I just planted some of my transplants-to-be last weekend. I kept them under a gro-lamp in homemade "humidity domes" of almost-sealed plastic bags. They sure stayed humid. When I opened the bags after a couple of days to re-water, I noticed that every single pot had grown a thin layer of white, hair-like mold or fungus over the soil. I spray-watered them, but I'm afraid it's going to kill the plants now! Is that normal? What should I do? (I have enough seeds and potting soil to replant if necessary).
