    This is my first post so I’m sorry if my formatting is wrong! ’ve had my Mother-In-Law’s Tongue for about 8 months now. It’s in a pot, the pot does not have drainage but I do have a thick layer of rocks on the bottom beneath the soil. I water every week and a half to every two weeks, and I’m in the process of moving. I came home after 2 days of moving and found it had grown a type of mold/mildew, and am unsure what to do. Included are pictures of the mold/mildew and my collection. Thank you so much!

    Welcome to the Forum!
    Please do get your nice Sansevieria into a new pot WITH drainage holes and fresh soil ASAP!
    Recommend you go easy with the water, too.
    Your fittonia and Ficus lyrata look good too. Same goes for them---drainage please!
    Good luck with the move!

    I agree with what the others have said, including removing the rocks.
    Was this in the same situation in your old place, down on the floor? I wonder if it is getting less light, so could use less frequent watering.
