How To Get Rid Of White Mold On Plants
By NATALIE FRANCISCO
White mold is a fungal disease that grows on your plant’s leaves, stems, and soil, so you’ll want to inspect them for cloudy, powdery, or fuzzy-looking spores. Mold can grow if you live in an environment with high humidity or your plant is overwatered, so here are the best ways to fix your white mold issue.
Baking soda kills fungus cells by changing the iron levels while leaving a layer of alkaline residue on the plant's foliage, but be careful as it can also change your plant’s growth. Spray 1 tablespoon of baking soda with ½ gallon of water and ½ teaspoon of dish soap onto your leaves, and continue to apply until the mold is gone.
Neem oil also kills and prevents the growth of many different fungal diseases and insect infestations with no harmful side effects. It comes ready to use in a spray bottle, or you can dilute a concentrated solution with 2 teaspoons of neem oil, ½ gallon of water, and 1 teaspoon of dish soap before spraying it onto your plants.
