Funny growth on potted plants...
I have a few plants in my apartment and recently I've been noticing the top soil has this white, crusty look to it.
I don't know what it is and was wondering if anyone could help me out.
Could it be the water? I, personally, use a Britta pitcher for my drinking water because the water from the tap isn't the most tastey. Could the tap water be high in sodium or something that it's leaving a white build up on the top soil of my house plants?
I've noticed this on my dragacenia, rubber plant, and rhoeo spathacea plants.
There isn't anything growing on the plants themselves, but it's just the top soil in the pots.
What is it, is it bad and how do I get rid of it?
Thanks to any help!
