Fluffy mold on ZZ plant roots
I was going to water my ZZ plant when I saw white fluffy mold covering its roots. I was thinking of taking the plant out of the pot and cleaning the mold under running water, but I am not sure whether this is enough or OK. How do I remove this mold without affecting the plant or the roots? Is there an effective natural solution for this? Thank you.
