Powdery mildew is the bane of cannabis growers everywhere. It’s very difficult to get rid of powdery mildew during flowering, and an infection during this crucial part of your growing season could be devastating. Today we’ll teach you to identify this blight, and the steps you can take to ensure it doesn’t threaten your crops again.
Spotting Powdery Mildew During Flowering
How can you spot powdery mildew on your cannabis plants? It starts with a fine layer of white mold on or around the leaves. It can appear on the top sides or undersides of leaves, as well as on stems, in large patches or small spots. If you see these signs, it may be too late – spores have already had a chance to start spreading. You need to act fast.
So you’ve detected powdery mildew. First, bag the plant that has visible signs and get it out of your grow space. Next, consider spreading out your plants a bit – PM thrives in crowded spaces. Monitor the plants nearby to ensure that it hasn’t spread, and remove plants as necessary. It’s worth losing a few plants to prevent the loss of your entire crop.
The Best Cure for Powdery Mildew
There are not many effective ways to remove powdery mildew on your cannabis during flowering – usually you have to throw out the infected plants and watch the rest of your crop closely. There is a way to prevent it altogether, though. Air purification can destroy airborne PM spores – and AiroClean420 is a proven and tested air purification solution for your facility.
