When you’re growing, it’s natural that you’ll see some mold on top of the soil. This is not dangerous for you or the plants (it’s actually a sign of good growing conditions), but it’s not too nice to look at.

1. Remove the layer of mold carefully with a fork, your finger or any other tool:

This will stop the growth from continuing in most cases.

2. Remove dead plant material from the soil.
