What is Damping Off?

The Damping Off disease is caused by pathogenic fungi of the genus Phytium which are found, in most cases, in cannabis seedlings and cuttings.

Damping-off is caused by excess moisture in the soil.

Post-emergence symptoms are characterized by drooping seedlings, necrotic cotyledons, necrotic, affected or non-existent roots, lesions at the base of the stem, and affected growth. This condition can prevail even when the seedling already has true leaves, but will still affect its development.


– The seed dies before creating the first green shoots.

– The trunk of the seedling or cutting rots, bending to death.


– Application of Antioxprot on the trunk of the seedling or cutting with the help of a brush.

– In an adult plant, apply Mycoprot in transplant and Bio 16 Trifag in irrigation every 15 days during the whole cycle of the plant.
