Use this anti-fungal cinnamon spray on plants to prevent rust, powdery mildew and other fungal diseases from spreading.
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon powder
- 2 cups of hot water
Add the cinnamon to a heat proof glass container.
Pour hot water over the cinnamon. Cover to prevent the volatile oils from dissipating. Allow to steep for 30 minutes.
Pour through a fine cloth or sieve. Pour the liquid into a spray bottle. Use at room temperature on leaves and stems of plants to prevent the spread of fungal diseases like rust and powdery mildew.
It’s important to remove infected plants. Dispose of them in the garbage or incinerate them. Don’t add diseased plant material to your compost bin.
