:ciao: 4u---PM loves 70* temps, acidic soil conditions high in nitrogen, and high relative humidity---idea is to increase the ph level on the leaves and stems by spraying a tbs of baking soda per gal of water with a wetting agent---spray every few days when the lights come on---if it is not there already---you should be safe till harvest

Hey 4U, if you want a guarentee to not get it do a sulphur burn at week 2-3 of flower.

I have not had any trouble with PMS (powdery mildew syndrome :) ) What should I look for in the beginning stages. I have a dehumidifier in the "lab" which keeps the humidity around 50%, but in my cabinets I don't have the ability to control humidity so it stays around 65%. I steadily pull in fresh air but I fear I may be susceptable to it. :)

Using a silica supplement like ProTekt from Dyna Gro will help the plant resist PM. Bugs too and some other things.

Cheap also. A qt is under $15 shipped and since you only use 1/4-1/2tsp/gallon of water once/week or so, it last forever.

It's worth a google search for more info.

Esp when you grow year round. Not to mention, do any kind of trading of genetics. Just too much to risk all around, when just one simple spray will do ya.
