    Ok.. I have been fighting this stuff for a month now. It only occurs in 3 pots of Utrics and it keeps coming back. I've plucked and scraped it off numerous times.. any suggestions?

    from just looking at your set up in the other topic. you might want to leave it open to the air. if that doesn't to the trick spray it down

    Hi,

    Whenever I get that kind of mold, I find there's only one thing that can work, and that's repotting. Open air, fungicides, and manual removal seem worthless against it, in my experience.

    Just remove as much of your plants as you can without including anything near that mold. (stay at least an inch away from it, even more would be better)The less soil you bring along to the new pot, the better too. You might want to rinse away all soil traces before adding it to the new pot.

    Take care!

    It isn't mold, it is a shet algea. I get it in my plants alot, best thing to do is to pluck as much away as you can, mist daily and drop the light level a bit. The misting leaches away micro-butrients that it is living off of and the drop in light level inhibits its photosyntesis reactions.

    Like the others have said. Repot the plant, maybe give it better air circulation, then give the soil surface a good spraying every day for the first few weeks.

    I have had trouble with this stuff before, and this method does a pretty good job of keeping it under control.

    then your best bet is to take it out of the soil wash it down to get all the old soil out of it then repot it into fresh mix.
