Attack from fungal pathogens is responsible for most of the seedling failures in my care and I am always on the look out for ways to help with this problem. I have recently heard about a product called "Dyna-Gro Pro-Tekt". The promotional literature claims that this gives protection against many different pathogens and biting insects by supplementing the plants silicon supply. The silicon being deposited in the plant tissues and thus makes the cell walls much stronger and less prone to invasion by pathogens. It sounds as though this may be worth a try but I would be very interested to hear from anyone with experience of using this stuff on young orchids.
