    Default Spraying fungicides

    Occasionally, I will spray fungicides to my plants whether they are flowering or not. I understand flowers that are in contact with water, will have their blooming period reduce. Will this happen if I sprayed to the flowers?

    Yes. In my opinion, spraying water or fungicide solution in the flowers is not recommended. In my experience, I have seen that flower life reduced by these.

    similar experience here, no problem in spraying fungicide to flowering plants but i am only using topical fungicide here. i had read from the net that use of some systemic fungicide is contraindicated when plant is in spike.
