Q.

white powdery mold

Zone 76106 | cogle58 added on June 16, 2018 | Answered

A white powdery mold showed up on my potted plants this morning. I cleaned it off of the plants with a wet paper towel. I read on this website to mix 1 TBSP Baking soda, 1/2 tsp liq. soap into 1 gal water and spray on the foilage under and over leaves. Is there anything else that might help this mold from showing up again?

There are a few ways to correct this, although the best way is prevention. This mold thrives in warm wet climates. Make sure to let the soil dry out quite a bit between watering to prevent this.

Mixing peroxide at 1 part peroxide to 4 parts water will correct the issue when sprayed and watered into the soil.

Neem oil can also help correct this.
