Fluffy mold on ZZ plant roots

Zone Portugal | Anonymous added on October 12, 2019 | Answered

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.

There must have been some change in the humidity level, temperature or moisture level of the plant's soil. By correcting the problem, the mold should disappear. If you need some air circulation, put a fan on low nearby. Here are more suggestions:
