How Do You Get Rid of Mold in Plant Soil?

Scrape off all of the surface mold around plants and discard it. According to Home Guides at SFGate, it may be necessary to re-pot potted plants with fresh, high-quality potting soil to get rid of mold. For plants in the ground, loosen the soil with a spade, tiller or gardening fork. Use a hand-held tool near the base of plants to avoid damaging the roots. Turning the soil increases drainage.
