THIS MAY BE OF INTEREST TO SOME OF YOU FELLOW GARDENERS THAT START YOUR OWN SEEDS INDOORS OR IN A GREENHOUSE. I WAS WATCHING CANADIAN GARDENING ON TV A WHILE BACK AND THEY SAID TO SPRINKLE CINNAMON ON TOP OF THE SOIL WHEN IT STARTED TO PRODUCE MOLD THAT IT WOULD CLEAR IT UP AND NOT HARM YOUR SEEDLINGS. I FIGURED THAT I WOULD GIVE IT A TRY AND IT WORKS. THE MOLD STARTS BECAUSE OF THE HIGH HUMIDITY IN THE ROOM AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CINNAMON DOES TO KILL THE SPORE BUT WITHIN 5 OR 6 DAYS IT WAS GONE. HOPE THIS HELPS.
