    as i was tending my plants one morning, i saw a bunch of little areas of white "fungus" on the soil of my pepper tree, im in the wrong topic but....also on my cactus,its interesting, it doesnt seem to harm the plants, if i try to take it of by removing the soil, it grows back soon, well i dont know what it is, help is appreciated, i would also post a pic, but i cant, also i dont know how, well any ways, thanks for your help,

    Not an expert but probably nothing to worry about as it is on soil and not the plant. Might try not watering as much and letting things dry out and fungus shouldn't be a problem [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Cactus shouldn't be water much at all during winter months when they go dormant unless you have them under lights. Will get the root rot if kept on wet side too much [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Might put a layer of sand (.5" or so) on top of the soil. Would pretty things up a bit and keep the surface of soil dry [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Looks like your question has already been answered [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img], but...

    Um, what was I going to say?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Oh, yeah! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    im in the wrong topic but[/QUOTE]

    Don't worry about it--you are completely in the right topic. B/c we lack a fungus forum here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img], 'miscellaneous plants', I think, is as close as it gets. This is, of course, unless some weirdo has started an 'answer all fungus questions' topic I don't know about. Call me paranoid.
