    Physan is much less severe than Alcohol, and works better

    I have had that mold and it never seems to effect the seeds. If the seeds have not germinated yet just let the medium dry out and it will kill the mold them re wet. I have used cinnamon with good sucess even after the seeds have germinated with no harm to the plants.

    Question for nepenthes gracilis and/or SarraceniaScott-
    What is PhySan solution? Where do you get it? How do you use it?

    I have 4 different types of seeds that I purchased from the same nursery. All 4 started molding about a week after I set them out in trays. I now have them separated from all of my other seed as they are the only seeds that started growing mold. I tried cinnamon and that didn't stop the mold. I tried adding a fine layer of sand to the top and then used a tweezers and positioned each seed just so... and that didn't stop the mold. I let them dry out a little bit a few times and that did seem to help but I don't particulalry like doing that. I think I'd like to know more about PhySan solution.
