    Indoor closet grow. I am 3 weeks into flowering and have 6 weeks left. I am batteling PM. I have been using serenade. I need something a little stronger. I bought some Safer Brand Garden fungucide spray which contains .40% Sulfur. Question: Will using a sulfur spray with only 6 weeks left effect the taste of the final product? I sure would hate to light up a big fat sulfur joint on Valentines day :sleep:
    Thanks in advance

    i used milk to get rid of my powdery mildew 2 weeks into flower. 1 part SKIM milk to 10 parts water. spray your whole plant with it, tops and bottoms of leaves, stems ect. its a biological treatment and works quite well. also adds calcium and other good stuff your plants need.
    i did this and it was completely gone in 24 hours. you can respray them to make sure it worked but this will work and your plants will love you for it.

    also pull your plants out of your box and spray down the inside of it with hydrogen peroxide solution, i used 3 parts water to 1 part peroxide. it will get the spores that blew around and stuck on the walls and equipment. if you dont do this part it will come back.

    i brought a master grower over 24 hours after my treatment and he was blown away by the effects of the milk, super shiny, healthy leaves with no trace of P.M.

    its been 5 days and no signs of it coming back.

    try and find a non chemical solution before using chemicals on your plants, i used safer brand insect spray and decimated my plants with it, i didnt know to rinse it off afterwards. chemicals should be your last resort.

    Hey thanks figtree. yea I have been using serenade which has Bacillus Subtillis which is a live culture and is used in organig gardening. It curbed it at first but it has become not quite as effective. I will try the milk soulution. I have not wiped down my closet (too lazy I guess) and that is probably one of the reasons why I am just barely one step ahead and I mean barely. I am just getting to that crucial time where I do not want the PM to go into the buds. They are such nice young buds. I wonder if the milk will kill any mold spores that might be present in the buds?

    I took your advice this morning figtree and gave the girls a milk bath and cleaned their room. Pics are posted in my grow journal. :)
