    White Stuff on (Unused) Orchid Bark [PICS]

    I went to soak some orchid bark that I've had for a year and a half in a bag. I noticed some white-ish and greyish spots on some of the pieces and was wondering if it's a type of fungus maybe growing, or what. Maybe it's normal. It might have had spots when it was brand new; I don't remember.

    After taking pictures, it looks like one is growing something for sure.

    Fungus....the bark must have been moist when they packaged it.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    new bag will likely get it.....it will go away once it eats all the food for it thats on and in the bark.....it will go away on its own....

    You could still use it...but it will break down faster than usual, so it is up to you.

    Fungus in the soil isnt a bad thing imho.
    Lots of plants do way better with some in the soil.

    If you ever get the chance, pull out any conifer from a nursery container, if its been in there for a while the rootball should be covered in white fungus.
