    I had pm on both my girls and what I found that worked well was the baking soda. I sprayed it three times within a couple of weeks and have been inspecting them daily. Baking soda works!

      how much baking soda? whats your mix

  • Maedae_3

    I’ve kept my plants in growth cycle for months more than needed, not wanting to send them to flower till i can get rid of the pm. So far I’ve tried neem, baking soda, and most recently serenade. Now the plants have already outgrown my small space. Can a peroxide solution be used before harvest? I can’t bring myself to throw them out after so much invested time. Any helpful ideas?

    Ok, Try this one, Get a garlic, milk, potassium bicarbonate, and oil, or soap. Mix 1 gallon of water with 1 crushed garlic, add half oz of potassium bicarb, 2spoons of oils or hand soap cup of milk…Give it a good mix, let it stand overnight,,, filter it into a spray bottle, and soak those girls…. then repeat 2weeks later…hope it works for you Maedea_3

    ‘Bud Rot Stop’ (similar to Serenade in the US) is amazing for this. I had written off 4 beautiful plants because of PM in a soil grow, but thought I’d try this first. Cleared up the PM overnight. Gonna use every 3 days until harvest now. Highly recommended.

    I’ve heard that compost tea does wonders, I myself am going to give this a shot. I don’t however recommend using it after the actual buds themselves have formed due to possibility of actual mold itself. the thing is that the beneficial microbes are supposed to take care of the outside contaminations. try it and respond. give your reviews…

    Another really good way to get rid of powdery mildew is to use MKP – you can get it from Kelp4Less for really cheap – here is the link – http://www.kelp4less.com/?s=mkp&submit.x=-995&submit.y=-290. The dry analysis is 0-52-34 (so there is no nitrogen). If you use it as a foliar spray it will supress PM. It’s pretty great, and it’s only $9.00 for a pound of it.

    I think it’s important to clean all of your fans when eradicating powdery mildon’t. I clean my fans by taking them outside,spraying them down with soapy water,formula 409 or a bleach solution.I soak the surfaces of the fan blades ,protective cage surrounding the blades and even the motor for a minute or two and then I blast them clean with water from a garden hose removing build up of residue, dust and spores.NEVER,NEVER,EVER do this while the fan is plugged in! The motor must be,I repeat must be completely dry before plugging in and turning on.Getting the motor wet will not harm it in any way so long as it is not plugged in until completely dry.Using this technique you don’t have to take anything apart and you clean the motor too. I don’t know much about motors but I think they last longer when they are clean cause they don’t overheat.Fans are cheap anyway.
