Hiya again Estoniastoner, and all the rest of you PM warriors!lol 35%RH is a bit low, especially in the growing phase, and might stress the plant to the point where it's more vulnerable to attack by PM. Even though the humidity is low, where the leaves touch each and lie on top of each other, is a perfect microcosm for PM to develop in. Too much nitrogen (overfertilization) will also make them more prone. So besides intake/outake, you need a fan blowing across the foliage so that the leaves are all at least jiggling in the wind. That way it's much harder for the PM spores to settle on the plant, and therefore have their chance to enter and infect. (I have a mini hurricane blasting in my 80cm x 80cmx 160cm cab, with 2 fans,as well as potent extration and intraction, I dare PM to settle down anywhere there!lol) BTW I've just sprayed some plants in grow with a milk solution, as a preventative,and they are loving it. I use skim milk, more or less 50%/50% with water. Ciao for now! peace

KaK - I also use higher strengths of h202. I just don't recommend others to do so until they are much more familiar with it. If I tell them to mix it stronger and they see some white "bleach" spots afterward.... they're gonna be pissed at me. LOL

Peroxide doesn't just wash it off, it kills mildew and mold. Peroxide is mother nature's bleach.

This looks like a promising new way of killing Mildew, Fungus and Bud Rot with UVC light. Only problem I see is these guys are clueless on how to sell a product. www.cleanlight.nl www.uvsource.eu Cannabis Cup 2011 New Way To Kill Powdery Mildew and Fungus

For PM the best things are Eagle 20ew or some Immunox. But these shouldn't be used in flower. Milk or GreenCure will work once into flower. L8 MJ
