Help! Mold growing on bottom of pots

    Iv just started a new grow in a 12 pot IWS flood and drain.

    The plants are only in the system 3 days (2weeks old) I took some of the pots out of the buckets today and noticed some light white mold growing out through the holes. Iv never seen this before. What can I do? I’ve tried to remove as much as possible. Iv searched online and all the advice says to keep them in a well circulated area with low humidity and direct light. I can’t do that with this system, it’s desgined to keep small amounts of water at the bottom of the bucket to keep the roots moist. How do I prevent mold from growing in this sort of environment ? No lights gets in and no air moving. It’s the perfect place for mold. Help!!

    Are you using any kind of amendment in the nutes? I'll see things like this in my netlids, I think that it may just be beneficial organisms.

    White mold is GOOD ..better its fucking Fantastic.. its called Mycelium, with many other useful molds about

    fungi and molds are the same thing...encourage at all costs it enables the roots to extract vits from the soil

    Thanks man. I may have read this a little too late. I flushed the medium with hydrogen peroxide but at a very low strengtht. They are still young so hopefully they will bouch back. Very slow growth at the moment

    I’m just using the AN coco base and Voodoo juice. Iv ran the system with hydrogen peroxide so hopefully all those beneficial microbes and organisms come back. I had a scare on my last run with mold on the buds so I didnt want to take any chance. I will know the next time

    As long as a portion of the established colony survived the chemical weapons attack, it should recover. Established mycelium networks can be disturbingly resilient.
