  Need help
From: Brian Williams pugturd at alltel.net> on 2006.01.10 at 21:44:17(13672)
I need some help with some seedlings. I have crossed some Colocasia
plants and have seedlings coming along. They have all done well so far
but I just noticed some fungus on one of the batches. I sprayed it with
some water and peroxide. Any suggestions on a fungicide I can use that
would not hurt such small plants? I am not sure why the out break but.
They have shown to be extremely sensitive at this point. If the lid is
off the container they leaves shrivel up if it is on tight the leaves
stay wet and rot.

Phyton 27 NOT physan

Physan or RD20 are safe enough for fern sporelings, so they should be safe for your seedlings.lynn

Tim, just wondering why not Physan?

Brian, In addition to the physan that Lynn suggests as a drench, try to
harden them off by putting the open container in a large plastic bag which
you also leave open at the top. This will slow down drying but give a little
air circulation. In a week or so they should have developed enough of a
cuticle on the leaves to stand in the open. Derek

Guys, Phyton 27 is a new material that is totally systemic. It irradiates both fungi and bacteria. Sound too good to be true? Well, it's not. It is worth the price. Check it out.
