These are naturally occurring salts from the water added to the pot. As clay is permeable it absorbs the water with the salts. As it dries and the water moves into the soil the salts are left behind and make the crust or layer that you see. To remove this wipe the rim with a cloth that has been soaked in a dilute mixture of vinegar and water. About 1 part ...

So, first off: I have no clue what kind of mold or fungus this one is. So the advice below is generic, but you told me in chat some of it worked (or seemed to be working), so I'll write down what I know about treating mold from my time working the garden store. Why is it there? If we had known that, we'd never had to throw away plants again. One way or ...

None of strawberries, raspberries, or kiwi fruit are grown commercially from seed. Strawberry plants produce "runners" which can be cut off to start a new plant. Raspberry plants can be dug up and split into smaller pieces to grow into more plants. Kiwi fruit are propagated either by grafting or by taking cuttings. If you put the seeds or the fruit ...

From my experience, you can and should remove those from avocado roots. I do not know what that is exactly but I observed that the more of those bumps appear on the roots, the slower the seed develops. If I remove it, the seed comes back to life. There is another thing I figured I need to watch out for, that slows down and eventually kills the seed - white ...

No one's answered you and there are several things I can pass along since I'm a "master gardener" - though that doesn't apply as much here as my experience. I have grown avocado trees from pits successfully numerous times. What you're seeing here, in my opinion, is mold. I suspect you're exposing the pit to too much water. After removing all the ...

I think it is mildew too. But it is only a small spot yet, so if you remove the affected leaf you might prevent spreading it to the rest of the leaves. Usually mildew comes with hot and humid weather. Try to get the plant on a ventilated spot.

Mold seeds doesn't mean that the seed is completely died, it can germinate but high moisture content will speed up to rot

I have a lot of avocado plants thriving in vases with water. Some are as old as 6 years. Those little white bumps are normal for plants that live in water. I don’t recommend you submerging the pit in the water though. I usually wrap my seeds in a damp paper towel and put it in a ziplock bag and leave it in my pantry until a root sprouts out. Then submerge ...

This is not mould this is a plant living in water and the roots are calcifying and eating through these this will not harm your plant my brother has many of these and so do I not a worry if you actually look at some of the seeds they actually have a mould growing around there that's different to what is growing on the roots
