White fluffy mold on indoor seedlings

Posted by marymarie2007 zone 5 (My Page) on

I have white fluffy mold on seedlings started under lights. According to what I read on line, my soil is too damp.

What do I do now? Do I have to throw out and start over? Or is there a way to salvage my seedlings?

Thanks for the help.

RE: White fluffy mold on indoor seedlings

If you just let them dry out, (Of course, they need to stay properly moist, don't let them become bone dry) it should disapear!

I never throw out seedlings until they are dead! lol

May wish to try an antifungal the next time you water, (don't add anything now, they don't need to get even wetter, it will just make it worse) but probably unnessisary.
