Damping Off in Seedlings

Anonymous added on March 10, 2012 | Answered

I just planted my seedlings and was about to cover them with sphagnum moss to prevent damping off, a natural alternative to using a fungicide spray. Then I realized I was supposed to use 'milled' sphagnum moss, not the regular sphagnum moss. Do I have to wait to start this until I can find the milled sphagnum, or can I use the regular sphagnum moss that I have?
