Dose Moldy Soil Harm Your Plant

To give your cinnamon plants the best chance at success, lightly dust their soil with ground cloves. Cinnamaldehyde is what gives regular spice its flavor and scent as well; it also acts like a natural fungicide to prevent mold growth! Remember that only an even distribution is needed- too much will have no effect on these heathens (I’m not sure if you knew this or not).
When watering your plants, be sure to wait until the top two inches of soil are dry before giving them any liquid. You can also test if it is necessary by drizzling some on a small area and seeing how long ago they were last watered; this will help you determine whether or not water should still go into those pots after all!
Is It Safe To Use Moldy Soil
When you use a lot of potting soil, it may happen that some white stuff starts blooming inside your bag. You might also find new fuzzies when opening an old one for the first time after bringing home from store and even worse…you’ll have no idea if those little baby plants are still alive! The question is: can I still use this dirt?
Mix up some dirt and work the white stuff back into it or add a little fresh compost before planting. Cut open one side of an 5-gallon bucket, pour in enough so that your plants will be three inches deep when they’re planted; then cover them with more earth until those roots can get started again from scratch!
If you’re planning to sow seeds, the best soil for your new plants would be some fresh dirt. The mold will compete with them and limit nutrients so it’s important that they have an advantage in this fight. Check out this detailed guide to remove mold from plant soil.
