Strange White Fluffy Stuff

I have grown grass in a pot, and now it is about 3 inches tall. But I have noticed some kind of white fluffy stuff on the surface. What is it? Is it poisonous to plants?

This is generally a fungus mold and may be due to soil that is not sterilized.

Make sure you use a good quality potting soil for container plantings.

You also can have fungus and mold issues if the plant does not receive good air circulation and or too much moisture.

Most types of fungus like this will not kill the plant, but you can make sure it does not spread or continue.

Increase the light and even place a small fan in the area.

I have a silver maple tree in my backyard that is very old and its roots show over the dirt. The roots that show over the dirt seem to be growing laterally and are about ten feet long. It seems to me that the tree took over my backyard and that is why my grass stopped growing. My backyard looks terrible to me with out grass, so I am wondering what I can do to grow healthy grass between the maple\’s roots. Thanks!
