It's in a tight neck bottle and have been doing OK. I don't know how to prevent this.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but it may be mealybug, not mold. Strip off the brown section to fully expose the white stuff, Spray it thoroughly with soapy water.

Putting it in a pot like a regular house plant would eliminate the risk.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

I use water gel beads on my Dracaena sanderiana, and distilled water when the gel beads shrink to inflate them again and so far do not get any of those.

As for the removal of those white stuff, maybe try alcohol cotton swab.
