Well, I've finally gotten over my algae hatred and learned to ignore most of it. Now, though, I've noticed the begininngs of a white powdery substance apparently growing in a couple of my pots. On the soil only, not the leaves. I suspect it is a fungus. I don't wish to harm my CPs, and I am begininng to prepare for dormancy issues anyhow. I have heard a fungicide bath is recommended before beginning dormancy.
Can anyone recommend a fungicide brand, or other treatment that works and is not known to kill the CPs? I've heard of sprinkling cinnamon on the soil surface... I've also heard that sulphur-based fungicides can be used, or should be avoided, both (confusing). If I can avoid the use of 'cidal' agents, I will, simply because I grow my pretties inside, where I and my cats live (aside from potential larger enviromental effects). But I'd rather treat once, in an effective manner, and not stress out the plants with repeated 'experimental' treatments.
For reference, affected species are:
Thanks for the help all!
Edit: I've also noticed a plate-like green growth in the S. purpurea pot and one of my VFT pots. I'll try to get a photo if I can.
