Powdery mildew, also known as white powdery mildew, comes from lots of different fungi. Powdery mildew looks like white or gray powdery growths on the leaves of your medicinal plants.

How To Get Rid Of Powdery Mildew During Flowering

  • Avoiding Powdery Mildew

If it’s possible, you should take certain steps to avoid an invasion of powdery mildew anyway. When you initially plant or transplant your plants into their mature location, make sure they have plenty of extra room. If they are planted closely together, the likelihood of powdery mildew popping up is significantly higher.

When you water your medicinal plants, you should make sure that you are doing it at a time of day when they will receive five hours or more of light after that. This can be artificial or natural light, depending on your growing situation.

You can also try using a LED light if you are an indoor medicinal grower, which will keep any missed powdery mildew spores from going for your valuable plants. Some growers who have a few years’ experience under their belts might prune some of the fan leaves that don’t receive any direct light due to shading.

  • Treating Powdery Mildew

If it’s possible, you should take certain steps to avoid an invasion of powdery mildew anyway. When you initially plant or transplant your plants into their mature location, make sure they have plenty of extra room. If they are planted closely together, the likelihood of powdery mildew popping up is significantly higher.

It can also be used preventatively before any powdery mildew arises at all. Another option is to do the same thing with one-half teaspoon of baking soda mixed with a quart of water.

Other options for destroying or preventing the powdery mildew include oil sprays such as neem oil, sesame oil, or fish oil. These sprays can also work well for other fungal diseases. A final option at your disposal is a milk spray made from 40% milk and 60% water.

This works so well because the milk has protein in it which reacts to the sun and naturally forms an antiseptic. This antiseptic is what kills the mildew. You can use a milk spray preventatively by spraying it on your plants every ten days, but only when the sun (or artificial light) is shining brightly. This is a common method for all gardeners to use on their plants.

In order to take care of a plant that has been infected with powdery mildew, you should utilize a plastic bag to remove the leaves that have been affected. Seal the bag and then put it into a disposal container that has a tight lid.

The reason for using the plastic bag is to prevent the spores from being sprung into the air and infecting other plants nearby. After removal of the infected areas, treat your plant with fungicide on the stems that held the removed leaves.
