    I have been growing for 20yrs and never experienced PM before this year. I have used milk, baking soda, and neem oil with success.

    My questions is has anyone used a garden hose with a sprayer/mixer to apply skim milk at a 10-20% ratio instead of hand/pump spraying the plants. I have lots of 8ft outdoors plants and my hands/arms take a beating.

    I am trying to use milk in a Miracle Grow liquafeed system. I am going to run 10 gal of water thru it and measure the oz of milk used trying to get a ratio or %. Also track the time. The problems?=probably inconsistent. Any masters please help with some wisdom

    Serenade works and you can mist while flowering too but it's only a temporary solution. Humidity will have to drop to stay rid of it.

    Thanks for the tips. I found it hard to get a good garden hose spray bottle but the best ended up to be using a continental sprayer on ratio #10. The model 6004 chapin hose end sprayer is supposed to work at a 10% ratio but never found it. It worked decent but i think better is using distilled water in a pump sprayer with milk. The ph of well water is lower and gives the pm better conditions. I will post a couple pictures further towards harvest.

    That is a couple shots after some plants were taken but overall not a great yr. i did finish my harvest off with washing my buds down with h202. I got about a qp a plant so far average with no mildew. If you seen them in july they were covered with PM. View attachment 2368203
