I find that if I use sphagnum instead of peat to keep the seeds moist, I get almost no mold. Peat on the other hand gets plenty of mold unless I dose with some fungicide. I've used propiconizole and azoxystrobin with no ill effects to my plants.
I've actually never had any success ever with sulfer based fungicides, every time I dose I get mold coming back. Plus sulfer is toxic to plants and really only protects the plants if it's covering them. Once it's washed off it's useless and it doesn't incorporate itself into the plant tissues.
The one fungicide I would avoid for flytraps is Bayer/BioAdvanced 3 in 1, it made my traps all super curvy and wonky looking for an entire growing season. I think last time I posted about it it seemed it was the Tebuconazole in that mixture that was causing the bad effects. I just use that for my cephs now, although it did nothing to get rid of my powdery mildew problem.
