Got a big ol bush growing outside . east coast in new england right on the shore. stays real humid until sept. any tips!!!
on preventing mold, forgot to mention that even tho its in topic
Thin the plants out to allow for more airflow.
This might sound counter productive but a foliar spray of insect frass/water. The microbes will colonize on the surface and not leave any room for mold/mildew.
Also keeping the plant healthy so it can fight mold/mildew on its own.
Look into IPM and you will find more info.
thanks AAA what type/brand of spray and plants pretty thined out for air flow. its just the rain then right after that the sun and 100% humidity that gets it. also wats IPM

Every morning my plants are dripping from the marine layer.
I mix insect frass with water and foliar spray.
Actually, I never liked foliar spray but this year I have been doing it daily and the results have been impressive.
Here is my rough schedule:
- Monday- BT- 4 TBSP per red sprayer
- Tuesday- Aloe 1/4 tsp
- Wednesday- Kelp-4TBSP per red sprayer
- Thursday- Coconut/agsil- 2 tsp per for red sprayer
- Friday- Insect frass 1/4 cup per Chaplin sprayer
- Saturday- Regenix- 3 tsp per sprayer
- Sunday- fulvic Acid 2 TBSP per red sprayer
I just wanted to check in and say hi, you helped me with the 4 harvest per year schedule and say thanks. Also I was wondering if you could help me out with the insect frass foliar spray ? I have a 2 gal sprayer and as for the amount of frass , do recommend 1/4 cup to that size sprayer? I am getting some wind burnt leaves and thought it would help to replenish the life and nutrients in the leaves. Thanks again for your help!
1 tbsp per gallon! Good luck.
