    Cinnamon works fine when applied to fungus, but not so good as a preventative treatment. The oils in cinnamon that kill fungus are volatile and evaporate in a short time. So applying it to your plants before doing 'fridge dormancy only kills any fungus that might be growing at that time.

    Sphagnum moss has antifungal properties, but it's not a 100% quarantee that a fungus that is resistant to those properties wouldn't start growing. I would check the plants on a regular basis just to be sure you catch any fungal problems before they get bad.

    Unless you're trying to save the environment or something then pick up some fungicide. I use Schultz's insecticide/fungicide/mitacide and it works great.

    Would that be the neem-based stuff? I've used this with great success as well. Burned my dews a bit (doesn't it all?) but on VFTs I have hosed them down like crazy without any sign of ill effect. Great stuff.
