My soil looks like there’s web on it!!

Are these spider webs all over on the top layer of my soil?? How can I remove it?
3ft to light, direct
2” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 year ago
More like mold. The soil looks like it holds a lot of moisture. Just let it dry out a little more before watering and just turn the top of the soil over. If the plant is happy nothing to worry about. Are you having a lot of rain at the moment. Extra moisture in the air can cause this also.
@HQHQ just like @Gordo said it’s mold. When I see mold I dig it out and replace the soil I removed or I just replace the soil completely. That’s just me. Others do as what Gordo said to do.

@Gordo it’s an indoor plant. Previously it was infested with those Tiny white spiders making webs around my leaves, not sure if these on the soil are also done by the spiders…

@KikiGoldblatt ohhh ok! Not sure if it’s done by those tiny spiders that was around my leaves previously. Will consider replacing the soil
@HQHQ I don’t think spider mites would do that to the soil but I could be wrong. Have you treated the one’s on the leaves? If just a spider and not spider mites then that are a beneficial pest and would leave them be. οΏΌmold can be small fibers and look like webbing. Try to grab a wed with a chopsticks or something to be sure.
@Gordo she is talking about spiders πŸ•· the icky creepy ones that like to make a web and catch bugs 🐞
@KikiGoldblatt I’m not sure. Hopefully the 8 leg variety as the spider mites are the ones you don’t want
@Gordo exactly eeek 😧
