Using Physan

carol222December 18, 2008

Those of you who use Physan on gesneriads, do you dip or spray? Do you keep it off the leaves and put in on the soil only? Do you use the recommended dosage or dilute further? Regular use, or only as needed?

Thanks.

Carol -

I add Physan to the fertilizer solution for the gesneriads that grow on mats to control the algae growth. I use 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water. A friend of mine uses 1 teaspoon per gallon to spray the plants against Powdery Mildew.

Where do you buy Physan? I've looked in HD and Lowes, but haven't found it there.

Check Internet. We have a Violet Showcase in town - so I buy there, sometimes in good nurseries - but never in HD or in Lowes.
heck http://www.physan.com/ - they have a link How to Purchase.

There are actually 3 concoctions with different brand names but with close ingredients. Physan, Consan and RD20.

Good luck and Happy New Year
