2.use spices to prevent damping off disease when starting seedlings
One of the great gardening methods is to use cooking spices instead of commercial antifungals. Spices are strong antioxidants.
They contain antifungal and antibacterial properties. Cinnamon, turmeric, clove, and mustard have strong antifungal properties.
I simply sprinkle the spice on top of the soil when I plant my seeds in pots, in the house to prevent damping off, and to limit mold growth on houseplants. I reapply the spices regularly after watering.
