Hey guys, there's something white spreading on the soil recently, and I'm not totally sure if it's mold or something else. Anyone has an idea of what I should do over this situation?

You can try a cinnamon spray. It should take care of the mold and not hurt your plants.

The brown layer on the soil is cinnamon powder, and mold still grows on the top of it, Weird. But I would try the spray anyway after I bought some little spray bottles, Thx.
