I recently moved to Bombay (Mumbai, India) and the weather is forgiving her so I thought why not! I bought all the organic stuff I could find and made a potting mix- manure + red soil, vermicompost, garden (red) soil, coco peat and all.
I looked at doing kitchen scraps first- garlic cloves, tomato slices, ripe chili seeds, ginger, onions tops, cilantro with roots.
This was started on Tuesday, they have been watered to the point that they are just wet. Thursday I woke up to white mold on them, after a google search, I ended up scrapping if off and sprinkling some cinnamon powder on them. Today, Sunday I woke up again to mold, this is sad. I tried to look at the starters itself; tomato slices are all moldy too and so are the garlic cloves.
This is my first time trying to take care of anything besides me, and I'm too worried to mess it up.
Can someone please tell me if this is normal?
