My soil looks like thereโ€™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
2โ€ pot with drainage
Last watered 11 months 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 itโ€™s mold. When I see mold I dig it out and replace the soil I removed or I just replace the soil completely. Thatโ€™s just me. Others do as what Gordo said to do.

@Gordo itโ€™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 spidersโ€ฆ

@KikiGoldblatt ohhh ok! Not sure if itโ€™s done by those tiny spiders that was around my leaves previously. Will consider replacing the soil
@HQHQ I donโ€™t think spider mites would do that to the soil but I could be wrong. Have you treated the oneโ€™s on the leaves? If just a spider and not spider mites then that are a beneficial pest and would leave them be. ๏ฟผmold 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 ๐Ÿ•ท the icky creepy ones that like to make a web and catch bugs ๐Ÿž
@KikiGoldblatt Iโ€™m not sure. Hopefully the 8 leg variety as the spider mites are the ones you donโ€™t want
@Gordo exactly eeek ๐Ÿ˜ง
