Hi, I’m Robyn Jasko, author of “Homesweet Homegrown” and founder of Grow Indie. And today, I’m going to teach you how to kill mold in a potted plant. So, one of the things about indoor gardening is that during the wintertime, your pots and your plants are inside and they don’t get a lot of airflow, and that could mean that fungus develops. So, if you run into a fungus problem, which you can tell by looking at the soil – you’ll see little bits of mold may be showing up on the soil. Or, maybe you’ll notice that some of the leaves are yellowing. You’ll know that you have a fungus problem. But, don’t worry, this is very easy to fix. You don’t have to resort to heavy duty pesticides. You can easily make your own concoction at home to take care of the mold, and get rid of it quick. What you’re going to need is hydrogen peroxide, a spray bottle, and some water. And, you’re going to mix up one part hydrogen peroxide to nine parts water, and then you’re going to put that in a spray bottle, and you’re going to spray the soil. You want to spray it one to two times a day until the mold starts to go away, and hydrogen peroxide is a great natural anti-fungal, so it’ll make sure it’ll work on that mold. So, you just spray your plant. And, just spray it right – you try not to get too much on the leaves, you know, just try to focus on the soil. And, do that about one to two times a day, and your mold problem will go away. My name is Robyn Jasko, author of “Homesweet Homegrown” and founder of Grow Indie. And, that is how to kill plant mold in a plant pot.
