I think i may have read about this somewhere in the forum but im not sure so im growing a couple of plants and this is about the 2nd week that they have been in the soil and i just started to realize web looking cobs on the top of the soil does this mean i may have spider mites or bugs?

Check the underside of your leaves. If you see little black or brown specks you have mites. :eek:

sulfer and water = acid? how do you figure this? sulfur is a trace element that is beneficial to plants and can be used to kill certain fungus's and insects.

well i was told that if sulfer from a volcanoic eruption gets into a lake or river they can become acidic and if it rains during an eruption the sulpher in the cloud produced by the volcano this can produce acid rain, rain water going thru the cloud piks up sulpher and becomes acidic, just what i remember from science from school, so i thought i might ask, but i suppose tiny amounts can be safe, sorry just had to ask
