    Is there anything you can do when mildew/mold gets on your plants? It's not the fuzzy kind it's these small black spots. It started out on the walls and we tried to clean it when that happened but now it's on certain parts of the plant stems. We have a bunch of plants in week 7 of flowering and now this fuckin happens. I'm including pictures so you can see what it looks like.

    All the plants have it somewhere on their stems but I don't see it on the buds, are the buds still smokeable?

    We have this stuff called "ecosense" that claims it can get rid of "black spot." Does anybody know if that's the same problem? Has anybody used this before or know if it's safe to spray on plants?

    No shit black mold is hazardous. I don't mean mold that looks black, but tested and confirmed as "black mold" is hazardous to your health.
    My little town lost its post office when true black mold was detected in it. It was immediately closed and merged into the next town. Even when the problem was fixed, the post office didn't return. Budget costs was the reason.

    Intense anti fungus chemicals are normally required to kill it, and then you need to fix the reason it formed...High humidity probably. I would not touch any plant that had the possibility to have true black mold on it.

    You cant... The only way to fix a moldy plant is to give it the axe.

    dont try and salvage anything that has been around black mold, the health risk is not worth it. i would take everything out and bleach the shit out of your equipment and walls. also make sure to use a good mask when cleaning. my aunt fucked her lungs up for life cleaning black mold with bleach in a basement without a respirator.

    This is a out dated reply but I have to respond to the above with only two words.. Bull Shit. Black mold was a scam that drove up insurance premiums and only benifited scam artist that would dress up in the same garb as the asbestos removers. There are people that are sensitive to bm but in no way is bm a death sentance to a plant.
