Fungus Growing Out of Bottom of Newspaper Pot

Wow, gross it kind of freaked me out like finding a spide on your shoulder. My plan to get rid of it is to pinch it off and them elevate all of my newspaper pots to prevent it from happening again. Does that sound good or should I know anything else? I figure it happened because I haven't been letting it dry out enough before watering?

You are correct the bottom has not been allowed to dry out this also includes all the soil in the pot so beware root rot MAY develope

Alright, thank you for confirming for me. I will take that into consideration about the roots, also.

I had Fungus not in the bottom but in the soil. Why the bottom of your Cups do not dry up. May be the drainage is not good. I got ready of the fungus by drenching the soil with CAPTIN solution. It is very effective.
