    Sounds like algae, don't worry about it. It grows on the moister parts of the media, especially after you fertilize.

    The easiest way to get rid of it is to scrape it off and put new media in its place.

    I've found that's not nearly as bad as other soil problems, the worst of which is when the old peat starts to "grow" over plants, smells horrible, and the active peat spreads very easily to other pots.
