fungal attacks

I use physan as a fungicide/bactericide, and often spray my plants as a
preventitive measure, and in case of attack. I grow mostly orchids, and have
now introduced a few CP's amidst my collection. The CP's seem to tolerate
the physan. Physan is a commonly used disinfectant, and appears to be quite
safe to use in the home environment. Add 1 tsp. to a gallon of water to
make a spray suitable for home use. It can also be added to drip trays in
slightly stronger concentrations to kill algae.

Good cultural practices will reduce the incidence of fungal and bacterial
disease. Good air circulation, especially during cooler nights, in enclosed
environments helps tremendously . A small fan is adequate for this purpose.
