Re: hosta talk

Is there a way to get rid of the green slime on the soil around seedlings
>short of picking it off.

I don't have the green slime around the soil in my potted hostas.  I use
fine poultry grit on the top and you will get no formation of the fungi.
Poultry grit is ground granite and therefore makes a good soil additive when
seedlings are placed in the ground also.  It comes in fine, medium and
coarse grind.  Use fine for dressing pots.  It is also very inexpensive at
most farm stores.

Now someone else jump in and answer another question from their experience.
