Q.I Used Wooden Plant Labels For My Seedlings And Found Blue-ish Mold Growing On Them! Do I Have To Throw Out My Plants?

jamiebee added on June 11, 2020 | Answered

I was checking my plants today and when I lifted my wooden plant labels I saw a blue-ish mold on the part of the BBQ stick that was damp from the soil it was in. I got rid of the labels, and tried to scoop out the soil around where the labels were stuck in. Sprinkled some cinnamon on top. Is this enough or do I have to get rid of the whole plant? I have some vegetable seedlings in there, would those still be safe?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. There are a few blue molds, but you won't see them often in a container setting.

Sometimes, ink can run leaving different colors.

Unfortunately, with limited information and no ability to see what is being described, I can't be of much assistance.

If you are concerned, you can always use a fungicide for preventative measure:
