Pot containers ruined????

So I was a bad gardener and kept my dead plant in a pot for over a year and a half.... I just cleaned it out tonight lol My question is, is it ruined? There are two pots. One has a little bit of green tint at top were the soil ended, it may be mold. If it isnt mold do you know what it is? Should I try to scrub it out? Is it harmful? The other one is clean except for stuck on dirt. Thanks!

Clean it out, wash it out and disinfect the inside of the pot with a bleach rinse of 10 parts water to 1 part bleach solution. Your pot should be OK.
