I haven't tried it, but I just had a similar thought recently... what about bordeaux mix? wouldn't that be a good fungicide?

That is a good idea, it might be worth a try.
Thanks,

FWIW - There is nothing to stop you from trying, but you should be aware that even of the many fungicides developed specifically for use in hort applications, there are very few that are appropriate for use with cuttings because most are known to inhibit rooting.

Thanks for the reminder(I hadn't really thought about it keeping them from rooting), I kept thinking that if it worked, surely everyone on this forum would know about it. For now, it seems the neem oil spray is keeping the mold at bay, hopefully it isn't too little, too late.
