Red Orange mold(?) on potting soil

HU-934509368
4 months ago

This growth came back after saturating the soil in boiling water and keeping it at 170F for over an hour. A mixture of potting soils used to grow herbs in a Bay Area sunroom planter. Was likely overwatered for previous two seasons. Wondering if I need to start over with new soil, or if better drainage and a better watering schedule can keep this from taking over. Herbs developed small unsightly bumps on leaves, which I'd really like to avoid...
