I used baking soda sprinkled lightly over my planting mix when I had planted basil seeds last year as I had used it previously as a fungicide on plants for mildew. Basil always required damp off or it failed previously. I did not lose any seedlings to damp off at all. I now use it on all my tender bedding plants with no ill effects.

I have a heated greenhouse that I use year round, and I use cinnamon sprinkled lightly over the planting mix.Have had excellent results with no loss at all to damping off.

What would happen if you used a dilute version of a regular garden fungicide? Our summers are VERY humid & hot area in the summer, and I use a spray fungicde on my roses for black spot. I could dilute that to spray on the seedlings, as I used to do with NoDamp.
