white eggs coating plant dish?

pogonipMarch 7, 2010

I've noticed that for some of my indoor succulents (in clay pots in west-facing windows) there is a thin coating of white egg-like things along the bottom of the pot and the dish - I didn't see them until I lifted the pot up. They're pretty gross, and I have no idea what it is - it may not be eggs at all, but some sort of fungus. Anyone have any ideas? Is it something I should be worried about?

We've seen images like this many times, and I think we've come to the conclusion that it's a benign fungus. In other words, not to worry. The stuff is feeding off of your potting medium.
