It’s that time of year again when we have to face the dreaded damping-off issue, a particularly difficult time for beginners to gardening.
Damping off — is a horticultural disease caused by numerous fungi and other pathogens, they can move through an entire tray of seedlings in a matter of days. It is probably the single biggest problem for gardeners who start their seedlings indoors.
Four facts that may help:
Don’t water too frequently:
Ensure adequate air circulation:
Maintain correct temperatures: Allowing plants to become either too hot or too cold can increase vulnerability to damping off.
Use only sterile compost.
Hope this is helpful.
