I usually use a kitchen spray bottle with a solution of the fungicide and
more or less mist the surface of the medium.

Salvia dorii germinated about 10 days ago, and I'm seeing signs of
damp-off.  I occasionally find it on cyclamen seedlings as well.  I was
using a canister of Captan that's designed to be used as a duster, but when
I'm trying to dust just the contents of a 4-inch pot without getting it
outside the pot, it's quite difficult and doesn't flow that easily.

Normally, I can come up with some off-the-wall tool or method to do the job
I want, but this time I'm blank. The commercial dusters, especially one
that has a rubber bulb you squeeze, seem too big.  I haven't, however, had
any experience with the rubber bulb duster.  Can anyone offer any
suggestions, sources, etc?
