    Default Systemic Fungicides?

    Can oomeone help me out with some fungicides? I think I am starting to have some fungus problem on some of my plants. I would like to get this cleared up ASAP. I know that I am not able to find any physan 20 in Canada, so I'll have to use somthing else...

    Can you guys give me a list of some systemic fungicides?

    Has anyone used Pyton 27? I know I can get this one in Canada

    Are systemic fungicides absorbed through the roots or through the leaves?

    I might have to use a fungicide designed for roses and ornimentals, are there any that are known to be harmful to orchids?

    Sorry for so many questions...But thank for all your help

    Can you get Daconil in Canada? That is one of the best. Funginex is usually used on roses here and works fine on orchids. I wish I knew the latin names of the main ingredient, since that is what you would need. Maybe someone else can help.

    To my knowledge, if a fungicide is rated for use on ornamentals, it's fine to use on orchids. I haven't found / used one yet that wasn't.

    Phyton-27 is a very good product. Fungicide and bactericide in one, and it's systemic, so if you can get that, definitely go for it.
