Fungicide questions.
    #2933949 - 07/27/04 09:08 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

All,

I have purchased some cactus mix and several glad lock containers. I believe I am ready to begin trying to sprout some cacti (peru torch). I have long wanted to grow these from seed and have heard that i need a antifungal to prevent mold during the high humidity phase, what kind of antifungal should i use and where can i get it? has anyone tried these in glad lock containers, or do they need some air circulation. any cacti seed starting tips would be appreciated.

i have done it without, in fact ive only done it without. no idea what people use but it is probably a good idea if you dont want to risk it.

Good question, I was in the shop the other day wondering the same thing with 10,000 fungicides infront of me. I read that it pretty much doesn't matter as long as you buy a plant safe one. Soemone knowledgable will confirm that though hopefully.

You could get some Bonide Remedy, I've heard reports of using cornmeal as a fungicide, but i don't think it should be used on seedlings.

However, use of fungicide isn't too terribly important if you sterilize your medium and the container before planting your seeds. Just put the thing in the microwave for 1minute per cup of medium you have in the container, then let it cool and plant your seeds.

I use straight potting soil with a little sand on top and have no probs with fungus. I would think neem oil would be good in that situation.
