Purchased fox farm happy frog about a week ago and havemt needed to use much of it ive kept it in the basement in a storage bin with lid about 25% off and stirred semi often. Went to stir it today and mold is starting to grow all over top. Anything I can do to combat this or is it junk? Photo might not be the beat but all i got lol
It’s a good possibility that I also have gnats.
Pretty sure what your seeing is a good thing. The soil I believe has mychorrizae fungi inoculated and that helps your living soil do it’s thing.
As far as fungus gnats you’ll know if you have them and that’s a different topic. If you see little flying critters (not fruit flies) than there are things you can do to minimize them and also treat for them if needed.
A quick search on this site will give you plenty of info if needed.
Questions on things just shout out…
Probably myccorrizae. That’s the good stuff.
Could be something else, but I wouldn’t be too worried.
OK so I have mushrooms growing in my herb box. Is that a good thing or a bad thing as far as good/bad fungi
Eat one! Might be a good thing!!!
Id send them to you to try out first
