About two weeks ago I purchased a Phrag. Eric Young 4N which is just starting it's inflorescence (made it's first flower bud) but after this time I see it has a very bad soil fungus attack. Today when I looked in my highland tank it looked as though the soil in the Phrag pot was wearing a thick white wig. Needless to say I pulled the sucker out of there before it spreads.
I would dearly love to repot in new media but I don't wanna forfeit the bloom so I was wondering if an application or two of Captan at the rate of 1 or 2 tsp per gallon of R/O would be enough to wipe it out?
I've never used this fungicide for anything other than to dust Sarracenia & Darlingtonia rhizomes for winter storage. Can someone tell me if this fungicide soil flush will work and how many times I will need to do it and how often? Should the flushes be seperated by pure R/O flushes and allowing a slight drying? then fungicde again then R/O then dry or...?
Thanks for any help! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
