Q.Orange/Copper Color Fungus on Soil Surface

Zone Seattle, WA | Waseaboy23 added on June 4, 2013 | Answered

Just recently transplanted my indoor calla lily bulbs from last year mixed the soil from last year 50/50 with New Miracle Grow Potting soil. After about a week I began to see an orange-ish copper colored fungus growing on the surface of the soil. What is it, fungus, mold, mildew? What, if any, ways to treat the soil, kill the copper fungus?Thank you for helping me with an answer.

I would suggest taking a sample to your local agricultural extension office for identification and recommendations. With no description other than color, there is no way to identify.
