Fungus?

Asked February 26, 2019, 9:17 AM EST

First time seed starting - is this a fungus? Only growing on onion seedlings, which I have pulled out of the case and put into open air/ morning sun. If it is a fungus can I save the seedlings or growing medium or should I get rid of these? How should I handle the rest of the non- onion seedlings and growing medium in the case? No sign of filaments elsewhere. Thank you garden wizards! 21229

It does look like you have some mold growing on the surface of the growing medium, possibly because it is too wet and/or too cool. Allow the surface to dry out between waterings to keep the area drier, or, you could start over with fresh medium and keep the pots in warmer/drier conditions from the start.
