    So, you have a fungus phobia? Hearten up, all is not lost.

    Fungus and mold are everywhere, they are not usually pathogenic. Actually most of them are beneficial in their own niche.

    Dried Sphagnum moss has a tendency to spawn a white fuzz when rehydrated. It usually goes away on its own after a week or two. Typically with no ill effects.
