    i got back from a trip to out cabin over the weekend. the humidifier malfunctioned or something and the entire tank was white with water vapor. i turned the humidifier off and opened the glass top to let the vapor escape, and when i look in, disaster!!!

    there is mold on most of my pings, and there are webs all over the substrate. there are also a few webs on the glass , plants, and soil that look like a spider made them, but no spiders in sight.

    what happened? is this a fungus? how to i get rid of them? will they come back? and how to i save my pings from the mold!!!

    that's all? oh thank god! spec said on aim it might be mites.

    i saw some little red/bronze "things" that i should were mites, but they had antenna and my plant's seem unafected, so i think they were something else. they were very small.

    i sprayed some shultz insectacide/mitacie/fungicide, just in case.

    Those sound like mites, so perhaps thats the cause. Both send out threads in the soil. better safe than sorry

    well, see, the plants are in a terrarium litteraly they are all planted together in a substrate that IME, makes everyone happy.

    i guess i'll just spray the combo poison of shults intull it runs out? i poured it in the humidifier and turned it on all the way to fog up my terr, to sort of make a "bug bomb" but i think it just clogged up my humidifier since it's not working...
