So, I have discovered there is such a thing as damp-rot. And it loves to kill your plants. And I hate it. However, there is a simple way to get rid of it if you catch it in time. If your plants start getting a little bit brown, and looking a little bit weak, what you do is you make a cup of tea. Yes, a cup of chamomile tea. 1-cup water, 1 teabag. Boil water mix with teabag and let it steep for about an hour. Mix with 1 more cup of water, and use the mixture to spray the surface of your plants and soil. The tea kills the damp-rot, and has saved a few of my little plants. It is all trial and error, and I am learning day by day.
