Damping off - Banrot

A week and a bit after treating my cyclamen seed pots with Banrot I'm happy
to say that any damping-off that was happening was immediately arrested in
its tracks.  A couple of pots that were badly affected haven't lost any more
seedlings since they were treated.  


Thanks to Mark Mazer for the advice!


Next year I'll treat prophylactically.  It is interesting to see that some
'strains' - the white and pink Fairy Wings in particular - and subspecies -
C. graecum ssp. candicum - are perennially more prone to damping off than
anything else.
