    I see this thread is more than a year old, but since this thread is on the first page of a search for "preventing mold" I think it needs to be answered. I have heard that acid helps to prevent or discourage mold, however it will also change the PH level of your soil which could stress your plants considerably.

    Phosphoric acid is a strong anti-organic agent. It is like hydrogen peroxide on steroids.
    We used PA to clean animal scale at UCLA. I wouldn't have it anywhere near my plants.

    dose makes the medicine, what are the details about strength of the mix?
    too much would certainly be a disaster, so subbing if any others have experience
