    Two or three of my indoor plants now have a white mold on top of the soil. Is there a homemade recipe I can try to get rid of it? Thanks so much.

    Hi Brow,

    From this site:
    http://www.ext.nodak.edu/extpubs/plantsci/landscap/pp744w.htm#trouble
    "A white or light yellow mold-like growth may indicate the presence of a saprophytic soil fungus, a fungus that lives on dead or decaying matter. The fungus will not harm the plant but may indicate unsterile potting medium or an overwatered plant."
