Will white fuzz on soil harm seeds?
I planted pepper seeds in plastic cups a week ago and I've noticed this fuzz that looks like spider webs start to form on the soil. Will it harm the seeds, and how do I get rid of it? I'm using jiffy seed start mix with some jobe's organic mixed in.

Yes, it can harm your seeds and eventually kill them. Start by decreasing the humidity around the seeds by removing the cover or poking holes if there is a bag around them. That should prevent the fungus from growing futher.
