    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    It looks like mealy bugs infestation. Does it resemble spit kinda and tacky like a syrup? Spider mites have this kinda "spit" web. If it is them methyl alcohol gets rid of them but you must wipe it all away by hand and I am not sure how those plants would handle methyl alcohol. I get the same looking thing on my cactus's quite often and I remove it with that on a Q-tip since it is usually between spines.

    AE, I have not tried fungicide, because I'm not sure if it is fungus, or what kind would kill it.
    Joe,
    I dont think it's S[pider mites. It's been watered in the picture. Normally its like thousand of grey/white short hairs. no mites in them.....

    I would say that it is a mold or fungus growing on something on the top of the pot... Think mold on cheese. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Try scraping it all off, down a couple of inches... Then replace the soil over it. Remember, you wouldn't want to send it around to other growers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    I am back..
