Mold in my Lophs container
    #3561583 - 12/30/04 03:38 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I've got some small Lophophoras growing in my room. About 2-3 months old. Right now theres some green mold growing on the surface of the soil and I'm not entirely sure what to do about it. I did a search and all I could find was "if you sterilize the soil you dont need fungicide to grow cacti" or something similar. Well I did sterilize the soil, but I still got mold.
So I'm just asking what a good fungicide would be. Or if theres something better I could do, I'd like to know what it is, b/c obviously using fungicides isn't the most desirable option. I don't really want to move them to another container b/c they're so young. Anyways, ANY help would be appreciated.

I think he said 2-3 months old. How much light and water are they getting? Too much water can result in the growth of some kind of fungus/mold.

Slime mold. Can be treated with a common root-tone with fungicide brushed on the soil with a small paint-brush. After a couple day of it sitting on the soil just water it away with a spray bottle. Easy enough for treating all cactus seedlings that are in high humidity and poor air circulation.

I've never seen this type of mold interfere in any way with my seedlings. I wouldn't worry about it.

Could be a little algae also which is harmless but unsightly.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

The first thing i normally try is to scrape off the top layer of soil with it on there and see if it grows back quick. Then I normally go for some chemicals after that.

I'm slowing some down by adding a layer of sand over top of it and then letting the top dry out before watering again
