    Ah well you changed photos since my last post. The previous photo showed what looked like a very distressed fungus covered plant in the upper right quarter of the photo.

    How long ago did you pot the plant in question?

    I'm not sure what I'm looking at. All peat will be colonised sooner or later.

    If you're annoyed by it, just replace the top half a centimetre of peat.
    I am not worried about the moss. But the white fuzzies. I know they are hard to see, but are there.

    NaN,
    No I didn't change the photo. If you look at the soil all around the pic, there is a faint white fuzzy fungus growing. It is hard to see from the photo, but very obvious to the naked eye. I repotted it probably around 3 months ago. But as I said I didn't remove the plant from it's current medium I just filled a larger pot with peat/sand/perlite and made an impression with the current pot. I then remove the plant from the pot, soil and all and dropped it into the impression I made.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I think I will go for the repotting. I do not like the medium I added to the pot. After more research I think it is too compact and I am keeping it too wet.

    Well, I did it. I hope I didn't kill it. It had a long tap root but not much in the way of small roots coming off of the tap root. I hope I didn't pull them off. The root looked healthy and had another growth point forming about 1/2 - 3/4 inch down from the base.

    I repotted in:

    45 % LFS
    45 % Perlite
    4 % peat
    4 % sand
    2 % charcoal

    Hope it likes its new conditions.

    Anything special I can do to help it adjust being man-handled by my big meaty claws?

    I am so glad I decided to repot. The grow point forming under the soil has sprung through and it outpacing my current growth point in growth I think.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Just thought I would provide an update.

    Very glad I decided to repot. In about 2 months time after repotting... I get this.
