Mold on seedlings

Posted by k0okie (My Page) on

I am wondering what to do about the tiny bit of mold on a few of my seedlings. It seems to be mostly on the seed that is still attached at the base but starting to spread a little bit more. I was going to use a bit of cinnamon but I wanted to check and see if that was a good idea first.

TIA for your help!

Try to dry them out as much as possible - maybe add a layer of vermiculite on top of the soil and definitely don't water for a while. You could also rub or pick the mold off.

RE: Mold on seedlings

You may be able to obtain a liquid fungicide called No Damp. It is made in Canada, you might be able to get it online though, and I use a syringe that you can buy in a drugstore to
apply it. I apply it undiluted to the growing medium, or you could dilute it (but still apply it about twice as strong as what the label recommends) and drop it directly onto the seed. Sativa.
