Hello everyone!
Just wanted to share something to keep away fungi from you veggie/fruit plants (learned it from someone else, by the way)...

If your fruit/vegetable plants are having trouble with fungi, then you can sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the soil. Not much, but just a little will kill the fungi.

Or, you can water your plant with Camomile tea (I know it doesn't sound like it would work, but it does!).
Love is patient and love is kind. Always be loving and kind to one another.

Great, natural idea Kim! I tried the cinnamon a while back, it didn't work for me at all. But I've never tried the tea. I will next time I have the need! Thumbs up

The cinnamon didn't do much for my melon seedlings, but worked on my bell pepper seedlings. Wonder why it sometimes works with different plants?

Have no idea but it's always worth a try because it's inexpensive and otherwise harmless. Plus, it smells really good, and repels ants!

I have a jalapeño pepper in a container, and a horrible outbreak of some kind of fungi.
Was thinking that I'd have to do a complete re-pot, but I'm going to try the cinnamon first!
I'll keep you posted!
Thanks for the tip!🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Tara, @terrafirma:
How did the cinnamon work out?? I had forgotten all about it.

Lol!
I had forgotten about this too!

What I ended up doing, was scraping off the top layer of soil, and replacing with fresh.
A 1/4"-1/2" or so.
Haven't had an issue since.
🤷🏼‍♀️
Sorry that I can't confirm or deny the possible results of cinnamon...

Ok, glad your pepper plant worked out. It's always useful to find out ways to kill fungi on plants, since for some reason I deal (or dealt, for we are in a new state now) with it regularly.
