When watering the plants/pots with Bokashi Tea mix water, next day I found fungus in the soil/matter in pot. There are chances that bulbs I planted like Ranunculus, Hyacinth, Tulips etc will catch fungus & not germinate.
what to do?

Thanks so much for your question. You do not need to be concerned about ill effects on your planted bulbs. The microbes and fungi in bokashi tea and bokashi compost are already present in healthy soil structures. The fungi and molds that you see after applying bokashi tea (or adding bokashi pre-compost to your soil) are good signs of a healthy soil food web. These should not affect any healthy bulbs in your soil. In fact, they will help by promoting healthy mycorrhizae networks that transport essential nutrients and minerals to your plant and bulb roots.

Happy composting 🙂
