Topsoil White Micro-mold?

Hey all,

So 5 days after watering, while the soil is still pretty wet, these white specks start to form on the top soil. I've only had this bonsai for about 2 weeks. Once the soil dries out though, the white specks disappear. Any recommendation on what I need to do to get rid of this problem / diagnosis on what this white stuff is??

barnosaur,

This indicates that the soil is too water retentive, and/or that the tree is not well established. Are you keeping it outside?
