    EcoSmart Organic Garden Fungicide

    I picked up a cheap bottle of EcoSmart(r) Organic(tm) Garden Fungicide at the local Home Depot.

    The ingredients list is as follows:

    Rosemary Oil - 0.24%
    Sodium Lauryl Sulfate - 0.2%
    Other Ingredients* - 99.56%
    (Water, Wintergreen Oil, Mineral Oil (U. S. P), Lecithins)

    Is this safe for CP?

    I'm trying the product on mold that I found on my Nepenthes ventrata. It Appears to be quite effective against mold, but I have yet to see any deleterious effects on the plant.

    Will guess it might be hard on moss and other bryophytes. Guessing similar on drosera, pinguicula, and utricularia. Similar mix of plant oils used to treat liverworts and mosses in nursery stock....
    Apparently in that case it is herbicidal....

    @kulamauiman Yup. I tried a little on a few leaves from D. capensis and D. spatulata leaves and the EcoSmart droplets caused the leaves to lose dew and brown almost instantly. Very bad for Drosera and possibly Dionaea.

    I still don't see any negative effects on N. ventrata.
