I found a great page online for controlling Fungus Knats and preventing Damping Off. https://www.smallfootprintfamily.com/how-to-control-fungus-gnats-organically .
I am going to try the potato slices for 48 hours before transplanting my babies into their grow home just to be sure I don’t have any. When I transplant, I am going to sprinkle Ceylon cinnamon around the stems of the babies to prevent Damping Off. The article says that this will kill the fungus that causes this.
I added these steps to my grow log. I’ll let you know how it works out.
By the way: The only reason I am overly concerned about this is that I am using a Organic Mulch in my base soil (before amendments) and want to be certain this won’t be an issue. I think the cinnamon to prevent damping off might just be a good rule of thumb.
