I have a Lucky Bamboo plant which has recently started growing a white mold around the rim of its pot. Over the past few weeks it has grown up the stalks of the plant as well. I boiled the rocks and washed the sides of the pot, but the fungus keeps returning. How can I treat the fungus growth?

The mold is probably on the plant, which is why it comes back after just cleaning the pot and rocks. Try cleaning the pot and rocks again, but this time also soak the plant for up to an hour in some water that has either a squirt of dishwashing liquid, or some baking soda (3 tsp/gallon of water) added.
