    I had that... It never really did any harm. I just scraped it off a couple of times and it never bothered me again. you can also try getting the plants out and fliping the soil so that the fungus is on the bottom.
    I also noticed that on my wetter pots the fungus didn't grow, but in the dryer pots it did.

    Could you try digging up you plants then taking the soil and sticking it in the microwave? Or perhaps if you have a pressure cooker that would work better no?

    Thanks for the replies guys! I still hate it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] It mockes
    me!! Those of you that have had it know what I mean?
    I sprayed it with physan 20 today. We'll see how it likes that. If that doesn't work, I think I'll try Gus's sulfer idea.

    Ok I'll let you guy's know how the physan or sulfer worked. I'f any body knows what this stuff is called, I would still be interested.

    I was thinking I may recall it being called dust mold... That is most likely just a common horticulture name though... BTW, it will either be end of Sept. or Oct.
