    fungicide for root rot

    hi guys i just discovered a fungicide that deals with root rot. The active ingredient is captan. Has anyone used a fungicide with captan safely on nepenthes. The ratio is 500g per kg

    I have successfully used Physan-20 and Zyban (4 ml/liter) on Nepenthes over the years . . .

    Do they contain captan as an active ingredient and how many grams per kg? How effective is it in treating or preventing root rot

    If I am not mistaken Captan is based on Copper. Copper based products and CPs in general do not mix. Since I don't do Nepenthes I have not idea of their tolerance is to copper. Zinc is a no-no.

    I don't believe that either contain ethyl mercaptan; though I don't have the MSDS materials on hand. I have had success with both seedling and adult plants with the fungicides listed above . . .
