    In theory, if you have a no-till and get a mycorrhizal network established in there, you needn't add any more spores.

    I say in theory because I haven't been able to verify this in practice yet - I'm still busy getting the basic soil food web established ;)

    I just found this in my soil. It looks like mold spores, is this benefitial or not? I used myco to inoculate my roots 2 times, growing 100% organic using biobizz nutes and guanos. Im watering every 6 or 7 days so im sure it's not an humidity issue. Why are all my plants growing this mold? It looks its spreading quickly. I don't have any other plagues.

    I got a small chunk of earth from the soil, this is the most I could gather. It looks like a thin layer on top of the soil with really fluffy small white hairs. The "mold" looks really white as you can see in this pic.

    I bought a product called micro vita from Top Crop nutrient brand (european), I can't find what it has but it contained a lot of beneficial bacteria and fungi (at least the label says so). Maybe it is because of that. It has taken months for me to see this. I noticed a yellow leaf fell on the soil and it was completely covered in white like in my previous pic. I thought I was developing mold. It's raining a lot here so while im not overwatering the humidity can get high sometimes.

    Then yes my guess would be thata mycelium growing and that's a good thing, sorry I can't really teach u more but u should Google it. If I had to put money on it that's what I'd say it is!

    Been using this. Cheap for what it does. Like the concentrate as directed. Only takes 1/8tsp for five quart (concentrate form). Granular is great soil additive. Mix it with nutes and pH for soil. Looking for tea to sub for nutes instead.
