    grey furry weblike stuff on my nep soil

    Hello,
    I have some kind of grey weblike stuff growing on my nep soil. I cant seem to figure out how to post a pic, or I would.
    I would describe it as if tiny spiders were spinning very dense webs across my moss. I don't Know what it is, but fungicide wont kill it. I blast it away with water and it comes back.

    Does anyone know what this is and how to get rid of it?

    Thanks

    I agree, it looks like a fungus, but I sprayed it with zyban, and it was not fazed.. So I figure it's either indestructable, or it's not a fungus. Also there are no little spores or anything on the furry cotton candy looking stuff. I am stumped so I am coming to the experts here for help.

    It is possible it's just a spider... I have a few living in some of my nep pots and pitchers and they spin their webs over openings in the moss/soil
