That's mold/fungi. What I do is mix a solution of soap/water (1:20 maybe) and spray on the soil. I have been doing it for a month and none of my plants seem to be suffering.. Maybe others can provide a better solution?

It's definitely spiders. I can see the little tiny black buggers hanging upside down under their web. They're fast so catching them is out and trying to squish them is tough to do on lfs. Need an arachnid-cide treatment here.
I really never had an issue with spiders. Infact I find them amazing for feeding small seedlings. I catch them and stuff them inside pitchers. Do u have a pic? are you sure its not spider mites? They can come in a wide range of sizes. Regular spiders are always welcome in my tank. I used to have a funnel web inside my N. rajah pot many years ago.
I don't usually have problems with spiders but when they cover the whole surface area of a pot, from rim to rim with webbing and its not your typical symmetric webbing it looks really bad. They are tiny and black and hang upside down under the webbing. There's a jumping spider in a holding tank and I have no problem with him. I've managed to get rid of them (for now). Cheers
Well, I've joined the battle. My S. Dana's Delight and Scarlet Belle have a case of spider mites. Been doing the soap/water treatment, with web removal by paper towel, but the little buggers just make a new one.
