Hi all, I am new to this site and was just wondering what could be causing my pots to be going like this. Most of my pots have this, and I have tried scrubbing them, but it doesn't seem to work. It is normally just at the soil level, and you can see it just over the soil level. I have tried searching online, and they all return results with mould in the soil. I cannot seem to find a straight answer. Thank you in advance Thank You!

Try vinegar to help clean the pots. It looks like mineral salts or calcium buildup from fertilizer.

The singlemost common mold in the world is white like that and is the primary degrader of biological material. It literally is everywhere. If it is showing up as a mold and that is not a mineral deposit as suggested earlier, you might consider simply not feeding it. Super soils- man made and over rich - literally could be the issue.
