A customer has a question or concerns and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks.
I noticed after I purchased that 2 of the strains are harder to grow. Powdery mildew and mold (prone to). Last summer was my first summer growing. I live in oregon , and we had a pretty dry summer and didnt have much trouble with mold at all which is not how it always goes, but I dont know what kind of seeds they were and they were about 7 years old.i was shocked that they germinated and were all feminine. Whats the best way to regulate the moisture level outdoors to prevent mold .Thanks
You could try tenting the area and doing a sulfur burn then remove tent or covering
But I agree with both above posts
lol guess this would be determined by how large of a outdoor grow you have
Sulfur burning will stop wpm tho
Treatment would need to be reapplied regularly also
Astoria 86 - Could have problems with mold and bud rot.
Pendleton 48 - Not a problem providing due care is paid to defoliation and the other stuff.
Work Around Astoria
Humidity June - July - August average around 62%
Start grow as early as possible.
Take early cuttings, top & FIM.
Veg cuttings until mid-June.
With a pre-built “Dark Box” cover the plants on a 12-12 light schedule in mid-June.
July change to 11-13
August to cropping change to 10-14
MOTHER plants should go the distance but if the worst happens… well shit happens. However, your customer will have backup buds from his early clone crop. If it’s a golden year, your customer will definitely become your best BUD!
I live in the north of Ireland and this is how I tackle mold and bud rot issues.
@jackowhee@ILGM.Becky posted this here to due just that give customer some hope thanks fir posting how you deal with the issues
Last summer here in the states it was unusually humid all outdoor season on both coasts just a fyi so i would actually think if things where normal the customer wouldn’t even had a issue last season but as we mentioned Mother Nature is a tuff cookie at times and we just need to adapt to the situation thanks again for sharing
