Mold in very bottle

I am dosing pps pro from Gla. The bottle of plantex keeps getting a white moldy looking stuff in it. What can I do about this. I tried adding a little excel in the mix , but it didn't help.

Well, you've got a super-high nurient rich house, so it's no surprise that stuff wants to grow in there. You can either ignore it, dump a bunch of excel in there to shock it, or just wait until the bottle is empty and then bleach it. Continue keeping it in the dark.

Regardless, some mold isn't going to hurt anything.

I put 20ml Excel in 500ml bottle. Seems to do the trick.

Refrigerate is another option.

Mold

Thanks for the replies and info. I will up the excel dose in the bottle and see what happens. I keep the bottle in the dark at room temperature.
