Sprouts are susceptible to fungus and mold because the same conditions excellent for germination are also excellent for fungus and mold. One easy way to avoid that is to use concentrated essential oil of oregano. Just four drops in a gallon of water will reduce the likelihood of fungus and mold. A slightly higher concentration will fight back an infection. The use of highly concentrated oregano can keep equipment clean or clean infected equipment.
Oregano is a natural way to reduce mold and fungus, and won’t introduce harmful chemicals to your diet as some synthetic chemical antifungals will. There is no more need for chlorine, ozone or bleach!
Oregano is affordable through the Maia Cooperative's TwoInTents CSA, which bulk-buys and bulk-ships to reduce costs, or is also available online through Amazon.com.v
