WHITE MOLD ON TERRA COTTA POTS | How to Remove and Prevent Mold Growth

#houseplants #moldonterracotta #neemoil

This is a quick explanation of how I remove white/green mold growth on the terra cotta pots of my houseplants. The mold is not dangerous for your plants, but it can certainly be an eye sore! This method has not negatively affected any growth or health of my plants this season 🙂
Thanks for watching!

The neem I use:

Garden Safe HG-93179 Neem Oil Extract Concentrate, 16-Fluid Ounces https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004QAWGIO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_dZ6UEbCEW04YG

  1. I found an off white sandy substance on the outside of one of my pots which is a painted ceramic planter. The planter is a little thinner than most of my planters. I thought the substance seemed more like a soft sand. It was all over the outside of the pot, a little bit thick in places. What are your thoughts? Could this be the same kind of mold? None of my pots are terracotta.

  2. I put my orchid in the bathroom for the steam during winter. One week later I have mold growing. This orchid has been with me for four years never had mold.

  3. So is this mold harmful to humans or pets? I have like three pots in my room that are starting to mold just like this. Thank you for the helpful video!

  4. Thank you for this video. I just planted one of my plants in a new mix with coco coir and suddenly the pot has mold! I was surprised and grossed out to see it. I’ll be scrubbing it down using your method. Thank you!

  5. I did this but I made the mistake of doing way too much neem oil. now my entire room stinks like chemicals. Still glad for no more mold.
