    Isn't cinnamon a preventative against fungus and molds??

    I think that cayenne pepper powder is the killer.

    And supposedly German chamomile is a natural fungus killer as well.

    (or do I have that backwards??)

    What about Neem Oil?

    number one thing to keep in mind about spider mites is they dont like high humidity.....spider mites should leave sphagnum alone for that reason.......have "cured" a few plants of spider mights simply by moving them from a low humidity area to a high humidity one......

    I've found this kind of fungus on some of my sphagnum in my Nepenthes pots (not quite as bad, but it looks very similar). Does anyone have any new solutions on how to get rid of it - or if it really is a problem? The sphagnum was added a little over a month ago (I laid the strands down lengthwise), and the fungus is found on the older parts of the moss, not the new growth heads. I've also fertilized the pots w Coffee twice since adding it. All plants are outside, and it's been a very wet month with less sun than normal.

    I have a similar fungus and I recently sprayed it with chlorothalonil. I can't say whether the fungus is gone yet, but the plant and the sphagnum are fine. It's supposedly a pretty mild chemical, as far as fungicides go.
