    There is mold growing on my cork bark, white, about a cm long and looks kinda like hair or fur. My terrarium is high humidity, but I was told cork bark is good with that. What is it, and will it effect my plants? My little frog?

    to get rid of it i would submerge it for a week(terrestrial fungus dosent grow under water. then put it under intense grow lights or in the sun(somthing that will make it dry very fast.

    I have heard recommended applying some cinnamon to mold. Would that be do-able?

    I just got Cleary's 3336WP from ********** (ever hear of these guys??) for molds and fungus, and have 0 mold this winter. TRY IT! It will kill many forms of mold and fungus. In the proper amounts, and they ARE premeasured, your plants will thrive while fungus and mold WILL NOT!!!!

    Hi there. I tried the cinnamon, and it didnt work - in fact, it made it worse! Now there is little spots of greenish mold growing where the cinnamon specks fell. I don't want my little frog to get sick!
