Just noticed this white stuff on the top soil of my new string of turtles and it looks like mold. What should I do? Is it harmful to leave it? I just bought this plant like 2 weeks ago & haven’t had this problem with any of my other plants.
String of Turtles
4ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 4 days ago
Give it a wash down with vinegar and water or hydrogen peroxide and water! Does look like mold. I like to bottom water so it lessens the chance of mold
Happens to the best of us. Try sprinkling some cinnamon and twirling the soil gently with a toothpick to sort of mix it around. Good luck!
I do bottom water, maybe it was from being top watered at the store. I’ll definitely try your suggestion, thanks!
