    Hi guys

    As I am growing some vegetables at home, I saw so many of those white/yellow dots in between soil and also, for the yellow mushrooms, not only do they grow on the surface, they also started to grow in between and under the soil. Do you know what is going on? How can I prevent this from happening in the future???

    I see the yellow mushrooms squishing against the container in the second photo. They are appearing below the soil level because you are growing in a clear container. They are responding to light. The fuzzy dots may be fungus gnat eggs. Are those large plastic soft drink containers? Kind of looks like glass jars, which would not be a good container to use. The soil may need more air.
