Would you like to find out how to get rid of powdery mildew and keep it from coming back? I finally beat my PM issues by dealing with it first in veg and then with an ozone generator to kill any left over spores.
Powdery mildew can be one of the worst things a grower has to deal with, especially if it happens later in flower. If you have struggled with PM and cant seem to shake it or if you have never had it and want to avoid getting it then please watch the video below.
How To Get Rid Of Powdery Mildew Using Ozone
In the video I said the cost about $90 and that is what I paid but right now it is on sale for $70!
Why Is Powdery Mildew So Hard To Get Rid of?
Powdery mildew makes spores. They are everywhere and can easily get into your grow on your shoes, from your clothes or even your pets. They are microscopic and also very hard to kill. The white you see on your leaves is easy to kill or get off but that is not what makes it spread. Trying to kill them by spraying is a lot like throwing a hot dog down a hallway. You will never know if you got them all and even if you did they are hard to kill at this stage.
PM can be so persistent some people think it is systemic. This is absolutely untrue. In the middle ages people believed flies came from rotten meat. They could not see the eggs flies laid only the maggots so they thought flies were created from bad meat. This same faulty kind of observation leads some to believe PM is systemic. They cant see the spores so they think it comes from the plant itself.
You wont be able to get all the spores by spraying or scrubbing and I have tried disinfecting with many products only to have it return. The only thing that worked for me was ozone.
Get This Ozone Generator And Kiss Powdery Mildew Goodbye
Ozone is a gas and as such it can get into places you cant. In addition it is a powerful oxidized and can kill mold spores at high concentrations. The Enerzen Commercial Ozone Generator is light weight, very portable and very easy to use. It has a dial you can turn it on with that also acts as a timer. This unit really puts out the ozone! It can cover up to 4000 square feet and that means most grow rooms unless you are in a warehouse.
You want to avoid breathing ozone. That goes for pets too. Dont run it with plants in your grow. Keep it away from curing weed or you will lose the smell.
This is for sterilizing your grow closet or tent. I put it in my closets and run for a couple of hours. It has a built in fan to spread the ozone around but I recommend running your recirculating fans and even running your exhaust fan if you have one.
Starting Clean With Your Clones And Veg Plants
You can sterilize your grow space until the cows come home but if you keep putting infected plants in you are going nowhere fast.
Below are two products that I know work. One is organic and one has Myclobutanil which is what is in Eagle 20. I really recommend using the because it is systemic and much more effective. Use it only in veg stage, gas your room and you wont need to use anything in flower.
