Yes - exactly like that.. I can wipe it off, it's just like a white powder. Is it a problem with surroundings, humidity etc? Countermeasures?Biffdoggie said:Powdery mildew? Does it look anything like this?
Sorry I missed your reply.. I will try it tomorrow. The plant is veg-ing at the moment, so no worries with the buds.ZenLunatic said:If it is indeed powdery mildew you can safely combat it by mixing a spray of 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp of epsom salts per quart of water.
Or if you prefer, you could hit your local garden center and pick up some Safer's Defender ... Both of these can be used during bloom cycle, however you must make sure you don't spray either directly onto your buds....
Once you've got it, powdery mildews quite the pain in the ass to rid yourself of.
