Prevention of 'damping off'

Hi Mark,

That would be great.  I bought some Banrot a few years ago to try to treat
Daphne root rot (Pythium and Phytophthora) - it didn't work - but I still
have it and never thought to try it for damping off.  Will it 'cure' an
active infection, or at least stop further spread within a pot?  My medium
is the BioComp BC5/perlite mix.

I do use a peroxide sterilant spray in the greenhouse every summer on all
the surfaces and find that helps a lot, but haven't done so for the past
couple of years.  Reminder to self...
