I'm looking for a really simple easy cheap way to kill this white fuzzy fungas in some of my potted outdoor plants i have. i scooped some of it out already, i was just wondering, Are you best to scoop it out, or can u just fork it in/mix it into the soil? I heard cinnamon (ground) was good for it t just sprinkle it on top is that right? But how exactly do i do that. Is it supposed to be on dry soil, and how long are you supposed to wait to water ur plants after using the cinnamon?

Thanks

3 percent peroxide one cup to a gallon of water. You can water all the time with. If you want. It'll take care of mold and give you plant roots extra oxygen !!! Try it for a while and see if plants look a little perkyer after a while.
I'd like to know!!!
Thanks !!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

Fungus is spread through the air, so putting something on the soil surface that's not quite so friendly to the fungus is the long-term solution. Although truthfully, most fungus on soil doesn't do any harm, it's just a bit unsightly for a little while. There's always going to be fungus on outdoor plants in a humid environment.

A surface mulch of wood chips, pebbles or even loose shredded leaves will dry more quickly than soil, and not be so inviting to mold spores.
