I have 10x 1000 watt lights tons of fans dehumidifiers 2 ton ac and still got this PM shit.

Never had it before does milk kill the mildew? Does it affect my yield? Will a sulfur burner save my crop? Will the milk solution save my crop? any of suggestions would be great. thanks

week two of flowering

well we just spotted it. Buds have just barely started to develop. In such an early stage can this mildew still affect yield if treated now?

another question. How should i apply the solution. to all the canopy of the three strains or just the ones that are infected? Should i pull leaves at this stage in flower? Or will simply the milk water mix cure my problem? Will adding more oscillating fans prevent the issue? or will i need another dehumidifier? My room is 25 by 14 btw

Milk works great against Powdery Mildew. I had it show its ugly head on some Lilacs, Snowpeas , and feverfew.

This site has a bunch of home-remedies for Powdery Mildew. I used a mix of Cinnamon oil/Milk and hit the infected plants and it made a big difference, plants look much better.

Also if the leaves are badly infected, cut them off.

Do you really want to spray buds with milk and water? wouldnt that turn the buds to mush and just cause other molds and fungi to grow?

No. Its a mixture of 9 ozes of water to one oz of milk. Also add a few drops of dish soap. Doesn't matter if its 1%, or vitamin D, but if you are that worried about milk residue.. use NON FAT> laugh

Hi,
I have just begun treating powdery mildew with milk solution. Just wondering, does anyone know if you need to spray with water afterwards to rinse off the milk? If so, how long after? And should you rinse between milk sprays?
Any help appreciated.

spray it on just before the lights go out, that way it will stay on the leaves longer and do a better job
