Before planting 20-something almonds I've read on various forums that people have encountered mold growing over theirs and destroying the seeds. After about a week from planting, I'm seeing a very thin white layer of mold on the surface of the soil and all around the almonds especially. Various sources recommend to sprinkle baking soda, apple cider vinegar or cinnamon on the mold, and claim it wouldn't harm the plants (nuts still in my case). But the mold seems too intense at this point. Maybe I should do something else?
I don't think the problem is in the soil, because other seeds and plants have been growing in the same soil just fine. The raw almonds probably already came infested with mold.
