Wow, a lot can happen in just 30 days! I started taking in clones and had a plant infected with powdery mildew get past my quarantine defenses. Well it spread to all my tents over the course of just a couple weeks. I decided to scrap my flowering tent at 3-4 weeks in, and my Agent Orange seed run that just started flowering. The only plants I kept were small clones that were easy to manage.
In talking with @JoeCrowe I decided to try spraying sulfur to see if it really could stop the infection. All of these clones I am working with had been infected. I sprayed them with wettable sulfur about 3 times waiting about a week in between each application, dunked them all in sulfur slurry, and even dusted them with sulfur to make sure every inch was covered. I then waited 2 weeks and sprayed them all again for good measure.
And now finally, here I am. I just started flowering today and I’m feeling pretty excited to see if this worked. I sprayed the sulfur off with water because there was so much that they were dusty when I bumped into them. I’ve got Bubba Kush from All Star Clones, Ice Cream Cake (@DGCloud), Platinum Kush Mints (@TheShowMeHomie), Super Lemon Haze and Tampa Crippy (PNW Strain Hunters), Slurricane and Sundae Driver (Clonify).
Coming up in a month I will be flowering MAC1, Purple Punch, and Blowfish x MotorBreath.
Fingers crossed that the PM doesn’t come back. If it does show up again I will trash everything and bring in some seed plants that I’ve been growing at another location (CSI Triangle Kush and Zkittlez S1). I’ve dealt with PM before but never on my cannabis. It’s been a learning experience but I’m staying cool and in hindsight it shouldn’t really hold me back for too long, even in the worst case scenario. Thankfully I’ve got enough bud to smoke for a long time, so it hasn’t been too hard for me to stop like this. The veggie garden outside is getting lots of love and attention because of it lol.
May the new month bring lots of good fortune to all you good OGers!!!
