Hi everyone! I'm new and it's great to be in this group!! I recently planted an indoor starter kit and the instructions said to keep a plastic film on top of it. (It came with the kit) anyway, I've got some sprouts, but I'm noticing some mold on the dirt in some of the pods.  Not sure why. Any suggestions.  I don't want to throw this away and start over. Thanks!

Get the plastic film off.  The sprouts need to breathe.  You may be overwatering too.  The soil doesn't need to be kept wet all the time.

I agree take the cover off and also put them somewhere they will get a light breeze of only warm air. Just crack the window open on warm days for a few hours, that should help a ton.
