We love our Zinnia seedlings! We planted Zinnia seeds about 6 weeks ago and they have grown very quickly! They are about 8 inches tall, however Zinnias are susceptible to fungus. As you can see in the video, fungus is growing around the stem. We have an organic solution we use to combat powdery mildew fungus!
Our organic solution is:
- Add 1 part milk to 10 parts water
- Mix the milk and water in a spray bottle
- Spray the entire zinnia plant
Stay tuned for future episodes as we track and eliminate fungus on our Zinnias. To learn more about growing from seed, click here.
