A little damping off problem

Keeping the germination station just moist enough to avoid fungal growth is real tricky. I bottom water all of them, but some cells seem to get damper or dry out faster than others. There's no real pattern. Because of this, damping off inevitably has hit a handful of the cells.


  1. what's in the last picture? those lovely red shoots are so pretty!

  2. Red orach. They're kind of shiny/metallic too.

  3. I use chamomile infusion, sprayed on the soil, to avoid damping off. Has always worked like a charm.
