    mold

    I just noticed my pygmy drosera pot was covered in surface mold and I think it killed all my D. nitidula ssp. allanostigma x eriksoniae. How can I get rid of it before it gets my pygmaea?

    You can use alcohol on a q-tip to get rid of it initially and then treat the soil surface with fungicide. If you don't have anything commercial to use as a fungicide I've heard cinnamon can be used.

    I am worried about using alcohol as the pots drainage holes are on the side so it might stay in the soil, will salt kill the drosera or will a bit not hurt?

    alcohol on a q-tip is not going to stay in the soil at all. It evaporates very quickly.

    Right. Said alcohol placed on your skin does not stay there, the same is with cuts thank god.
    that makes no logic

    Normally when i get mold, there's something wrong with the conditions...
    i.e. the media is not draining enough, not enough light, too waterlogged, media wasn't rinsed, etc...
    Do you have a pic or can you describe what you're using right now?
