    Cool D.Regia seeds & Fungicide

    About 13 days ago i spread some D. regia seeds on top of some finely chopped lfs, ontop of the substrate and today i noticed their was gray mold in different spots on the top of the sphagnum, can someone recommend a good Fungicide to spray on the seeds or the surface. That will not harm the seeds.

    Usually fungus doesn't do anything to seeds. If it gets bad, use a bit of hydrogen peroxide.

    sulfer spray is usually fine and works well.. i used it on my various drosera seeds without a problem.. fungus CAN kill seeds if left unchecked.

    Cinnamon is great for preventing mold and fungus on seeds. After sowing, I sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon (the spice) right on top. It does not hinder germination. It should also kill mold and fungus that has already formed as well. I had sown some seeds about a month ago and thought I could get away with not using it. It seems to have worked on killing the gray mold that I had popping up.

    Good luck!

    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    What about mixing trichoderma into soil and spraying the surface of the soil with sown seeds with trichoderma solution?

    I have some drosera seeds and cephalotus sprouts. Will the cinnamon kill the young cephalotus sprouts?

    I use Physan 20...doesn't seem to bother the sarracenia seeds and its saved a few sprouts from death..


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
