    Hello
    My den.cuthbertsonii terrarium have white fungus spots. Can I use Neem oil? Or any other suggestion to kill those fungi? I appreciate any help!

    Are you sure they are from fungus? The first thing I try when I'm not sure what I have is 3% hydrogen peroxide. Just as it comes from the drugstore. You can spray it on. Neem oil is an insecticide.

    Thank you so much, I just moved to US and I am not familiar about anti fungus medicine here. Do I need to dilute 3% hydrogen peroxide or I can directly spray it to my plants?

    Welcome to the US and to the forum! Spray it just as it comes in the bottle. You might want to might want to take a few photos of the problem and maybe someone on the forum can confirm what it is.

    It would definitely be good for you to post a photo of what's going on. Best identify your problems before tossing things at them. Then you can toss the appropriate things at it.
