keep in mind, the guy at lesco, although he probably knows his stuff, does not have to pay for your damaged plants...

I do apologize, I should not have used the word cured, wrong terminology...the fungicides stop the spread of the fungus and/or prevent it. It will not cure your damaged roots. Follow the instructions that came with your fungicide. Usually they recommend one application every two to four weeks. Once you feel the fungus is contained (usually about 4 weeks to be safe) you can begin fertilizing again. Any plant material that is unaffected by the fungus can be fertilized normally.

Be sure to water your plant material the day before the application. This will drastically reduce the damage to your plants. In addition, a little strong can cause a lot of harm...fungicide can hurt your plants worse than the fungus.

Sounds like you are on the right path...but do not give up on the fertigator just yet. Once your fungus is cured and you are sure you ph is in balance give it another shot.
