With over 87.7K likes and 7931 shares, it's clear that people are excited about this one-step process of cleaning up a moldy plant.
The video is simple and straightforward. The content creator narrates and demonstrates how it's done:
She starts with a plant with fungus. She waters the plant with the solution that she made from one part peroxide and three parts water.
She says that you just need to follow these instructions and your mold problems will be gone. That simple!
Now, we know what you're thinking. "Peroxide? Won't that harm my plant?"
The answer is no! In fact, peroxide is a must-have for plant care. It kills anything in the soil and gives a nice oxygen boost to the plant.
One TikTok user, Kiki, even uses peroxide about once a month on all her plants.
But wait, there's even more advice in the comment section! Another user, BlackLuxury0215, shared that they put cinnamon on their moldy plant and it all went away.
The Happy Plantress was intrigued and asked if they watered after adding cinnamon. It's always great to have multiple options for plant care. You can read more about using cinnamon in plant care here: Pro-Level Gardening Tip: Use Cinnamon As A Natural Fungicide
Lastly, SativaCyborg shared that if there's a fungus in your soil, it means you've got a good healthy soil biome.
So, don't be too quick to get rid of all the fungus in your soil. It could be beneficial for your plant's growth.
However, if you see moldy fungus on your plant, make a peroxide water solution.
Saturate the plant and it should be gone!
It's a quick and easy solution that has been tried and tested by many plant parents.
Don't let mold and fungus ruin your plant's growth. Give this solution a try and let us know how it worked for you!
