Preventing Powdery Mildew
I have a particular strain of mj that is a Master x Bubba hybrid. It's a really potent strain that I really like. The only problem is, it's highly susceptible to powdery mildew. I have six different strains of mother plants growing together in the mother cab. The MxB will get covered with powdery mildew while all the plants around it have none. I'm a couple weeks into veg on some plants that were cloned from the mother and I noticed yesterday that the leaves have a slightly dull patina to them - a sure sign that they are starting to develop powdery mildew.
I have a sulphur burner, and I have Serenade, so I know how to treat the powdery mildew. My question is, does anyone know how to prevent it?
I've been looking at Silica supplements. The propaganda says that silica helps strengthen cell walls. Would strengthening the cell walls make the plant less susceptible to powdery mildew?
Anyone have any experience with this type of problem?
Never argue with an idiot - they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
All of this is just pretend. But if I grew marijuana, it would be in strict compliance with California Law, SB420.
