It was brought to my attention last night that one of my recent divions was being treated with fungicides. The grower was concnered about a white/grayish residue that would not wash off.
(An understandable concern I might add, and I am to blame for not foreseeing this issue)
Prior to shipment I soak the divisions in a very strong Trichoderma brew... when it dries it will leave a whitish/creme/gray residue on the pitchers... it can be rather heavy in appearance.
This will not be seen on new growth and is nothing to worry about.
I do this to give them a good headstart in their new home and is a practice I have used for years on all my helis.
Please, please do not start dumping powerful chemical fungicides on your new heli diviisions without consulting me.
