How can I prevent mildew from forming on the pebbles in my plant pot?

I have a lucky bamboo plant that's potted in little rocks, but mildew keeps forming on the pebbles. What can I do to prevent that?

Remove the bamboo plant and wash the container with a diluted mix of water and vinegar, rinse well and refill using distilled water.

The "mildew" is probably moss. It's caused because the rocks are usually damp. The easiest way to control to take them off and rise them from time to time.

If your plant is getting too wet, and not having time between waterings to dry out, you will get that awful mildew. Remove periodically and dry.

The mildew grows because the pebbles are humid and not kept clean the best way is to use a paint to paint the pebbles.
