Orange stuff near roots?
Hey guys, just noticed this orange-ish “fuzzy” stuff near the roots of my #ParlorPalm — anyone know what this is? Root rot? Fungus? Insects? I’ve never seen this before.
10ft to light, indirect
10” pot with drainage
Last watered 2 weeks ago
I don’t think it’s a pest issue at all. I’m not sure if it’s mineral building up or just some mould. Hopefully you can get clarification on which one it is. If it is the mould I wouldn’t worry too much as that is a good side of healthy soil microbial activity. If it’s a mineral buildup then a couple of good flushes of the soil will help reduce. 
@Gordo thanks Gordon! I appreciate your advice! :)
Dryer fungus. I see them on top of the dirt in my pots
@IndependentKay thanks Kay!! 🙏 any recommendations for what to do next?
@lazyplantparent seems harmless so I do nothing. I use to remove them but they come back. I think it’s from lots of moisture in the dirt.
@IndependentKay good to know, thanks again I appreciate it!
