If the fungus has already taken hold, a foliar application of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) can be effective in keeping it from spreading, but the best way to control any fungus is by preventing it. Keeping a strong microbiological environment in your soil will help a plant’s immune system and, very importantly, keep your soil draining well—fungus needs a high moisture environment to thrive.
