Fungul growth usually can be attributed to overwatering, poor drainage and/or poor air circulation. Cut back on the watering and see if that keeps the fungus from coming back. You also can replace the soil if it seems too soggy. African violets like moist but not soggy soil. Especially be sure it doesn't stand in water.
