    Ray, following up to let you know the Concentric Ag's Inocucor Garden Solution seems to have worked at keeping the fungus from spreading further. Thanks for your advice!

    =raybark;465770]If you want to go with synthetic chemicals and are not concerned about residual toxicity, look for thiomyl - it's the generic version of Cleary's 3336. Use at 1 tablespoon/gallon.

    If you want to go with an ecologically friendlier approach, Concentric Ag's Inocucor Garden Solution is the way to go. It consists of several, cooperating consortia of beneficial bacteria and fungi that "infect" the plant and any medium, killing the pathogens, secreting antibiotics to reduce or prevent future infections, and secreting plant growth stimulating hormones, to boot. 3 Tablespoons per gallon, thoroughly wetting the plant, roots and medium. Reinforce that daily for 2-3 days, then after that, use it once a month as a probiotic/preventive treatment.[/QUOTE]

    I do , at times, envy you folk living in a sophisticated modern society, when I hear this sort of stuff talked about. There is no equivalent marketed in UK....
    some of this may be due to regulation - it is easy to blame that. In other cases I guess we are just too small a market to make foreign (to UK) companies bother with us.
    Back in the day when Physan ceased to be on sale in any EU state including UK, I considered planning a holiday in US with a side trip to buy a stock. And then when I looked at the cost in excess baggage of taking a couple of gallon home, I went off the idea and found a locally available similar product.

    Of course there is another side, when I read of your latest massacre by some teenager armed with a gun... then Iím glad I donít live in an unregulated country...
