Dragon tree plant with yellow mold
Here is my predicament and I could really use some advice... I have a lovely dragon tree plant and I repotted it about 2 months ago. Yesterday I went to water it and noticed that a yellow mold appeared on top of the soil around the plant (NOT on the plant) and so I carefully removed the mold, thinking it would not be enough, but at least a good start. After removing the mold I watered (the plant was thirsty and all) and I noticed a bunch of little teensy white dots that basically look like bug eggs of some sort, although I'm sure they're not bug eggs. If they are, I'm in big trouble because there are hundreds of them. I'm fairly sure they're mold spores just waiting to flourish. I've never had this problem before. I thought about repotting the plant, but the spores are probably in the root ball too so it seems unlikely. I think the mold probably came from the pot I'm using, not the soil. The is plastic and had been used long ago, I probably didn't clean it out well enough. It is unlikely to me that it's the soil because none of the other plants I repotted using the same soil have a similar problem Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? I contacted my local nursery and they said that none of the fungicides they had worked on indoor house plants, that they were all for fruit trees. I really love this plant, it's beautiful and healthy. I'd like it to stay that way.
