Can anyone please confirm this is powdery mildew? And if so what’s my best plan of attack?
Plants are still in veg hoping to get rid of this and flip them if possible but one plant has it pretty much on every leaf.
Thanks in advance.
Does not look like it to me
Welcome to the community , from my experience it does not look like white powder mildew .
are you using a Humidifier?
Can u get closer pics please. I dont think it is
Any ideas if not mildew? I have neglected these plants they’ve been run dry a few times but they seem to spring back every time I feed them again could have something to do with it maybe.
I believe its spider mites
Yes it is.
Yep, I second the spider mites.
Powdery mildew looks like this. Like someone painted it with white water colors splatter paint style with a paint ball gun. This is how it looks on my pumpkins.
yeah , spider mites was my 1st thoughts.
You definitely have spider mites and have let them get a stronghold. At this stage with no flowers present I would get some bug bombs then a bottle of green cleaner and spray every 4 days. Wipe the bottom side of all infected leaves with the green cleaner to remove eggs.
On second thought many suggest dunking plants this small pot and all.
Yeah so seems like they’re webs and there are some little moving critters on the leaves…. So how do I get rid of them?
If you have webs it’s a bad infestation.
I am battling mites right now. I have using Captain Jack’s Dead Bug and just ordered Safer. I also have a sample of organishield I am going to try.
Homemade concoctions I have tried:
1/4 tsp of essential oil (mint, clove, tea tree, pine, rosemary), a few drops of Castile soap, and dilute in water.
I also tried a cinnamon tea and cayenne peppers soaked in water.
Isopropyl alcohol mixed 50:50 with water.
Best of luck to you.
Thanks, I had some isopropyl alcohol diluted with some water and added some soap. I’ll hit them everyday and hopefully this will solve it.
Hotshot no pest strips. Only had spider mites once put 4 strips is a 4x2 tent they were gone in a day. Took out 2 Left 2 in there for a the whole grow. Have to leave them till all eggs hatch and gnats from those eggs die. If not that is how super bugs are created. never seen any more ever. That was 2 years ago. I used them once after that for gnats gone quick.
My tent is away from where we would have to breath it constantly.
I am adding these pest strips to my Amazon cart! Thank you for the tip @DRsDank !
You may want to look up just dunking the whole plants and bug bombing the entire room.
I agree with capt jacks spray it works.
