So my seedling pots that suffered a severe botrytis outbreak this year are now growing rapidly. I'm seeing some brown bullseye spots on a few of the leaves in some pots. My guess is leftover spores from last year as I cleaned all the rotten foliage. What is the best way to handle it now though. Should I cut leaves off, spray with fungicide or both? What do you recommend? Thanks.

Spray lightly with weak solution. Keep green leaves with spots, as many as possible, as the goal is to ONLY STOP the existing botrytis from growing and multiplying. Be gentle. Little seedlings don't like being sprayed either and try to prevent any droplet of spray from acting like a magnifying glass in the sunlight which injure the surface and result in another brown spot for botrytis to set in. Dry in shade with
a breeze. Use small house fan if needed. Smiling
