RE: White mould on peat pellets

When I have used peat pellets I have always gotten mold, usually green, but some white. I have never noticed that it affected the seedlings. You can scrape it off, or stir it in to make sure it doesn't turn into a solid coat that smothers the soil, but if you are planting them out soon I wouldn't worry about it.
