Keeping this in consideration, can black mold grow on soil?

Stachybotrys is the mold you don't want to find. It is the most toxic of the molds that can grow in a crawl space. This is the true "black mold" that is dangerous to all who have the unfortunate luck to find it growing in the dirt, drywall, carpet, subflooring or insulation.

Furthermore, why is my soil turning black? Dark brown or black color in soil indicates that the soil has a high organic matter content. Wet soil will appear darker than dry soil. However, the presence of water also affects soil color by affecting the oxidation rate. Soil that has a high water content will have less air in the soil, specifically less oxygen.
