This is my first time growing my own marijuana and I need some help. The pictures are of a purple Hindu plant I grew from seed and I think it might have Powdery mildew. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks danib!
Does it wipe off fairly easily with your finger?
Spontaneous recourse to a microscope in order to launch this thread certainly makes sense but i was hoping for clearer evidence like foreing filament structures spreading around a spore or similar. Perhaps that same strategy was used before by others and if so then there should be more snapshots to compare with. Meanwhile lets hope large-scale hints as suggested above may suffice to provide more confidence about what’s next…
Good day, have fun!!
It does not wipe off very well. It is like a crystal web. Like it has been shipped in sugar.
This is the whole plant. For reference. Once I get home tonight I can take a better picture.
Could it just be tricomes forming?
Thank you all. I was starting to worry and wanted to remove it if it was mildew. I will keep close watch on it. Thanks again
What are you using to check the trichomes. That’s an excellent picture. Did you have to stay right on it or from a distance. I’m a first time grower so not sure. Thanks
It is a wireless microscope off Amazon.
In the cigar world, cigars can mold. It does not wipe off easy at all. In fact it will leave a stain on the wrapper of the cigar. It forms when it has high humidity and high temps.
But that doesn’t look like mold on the zoom in photo. I maybe wrong.
