Controlling Powdery Mildew

This is the easiest and cheapest way I've found to eliminate powdery mildew on my plants.  It has never failed me!  I'm doing this in the aquaponic greenhouse, but this can be done indoors or any regular soil garden.

Hi. I am so thrilled by the efforts and all the work done on an amazing greenhouse.

I have had some trouble with powdery mildew on plants first outside and then once in my greenhouse. My conclusion on the reasons for this to occur, is only to much fertilizer. Manure or something else. Either it is to strong or in combination with to much watering. As that releases and concentrates the fertilizer at that time.

As this several times originally appeared on plants out on the field and free air there cant be reasons other than in the soil.

I sincerely hope I do not cause to much annoyance but we really need to kill the myth that so much illness in plants comes from the "air". That is not true. We can help plants grow strong or undermine there chances to get there by exaggerating even ordinary manure. I did it myself and luckily on an area there it could not be other causes than my mistreating of the plants environment. Often this happens after heavy rains/watering and we turn to think what we have learned that it is in the air, but it is not. It is in the cause of to much water that frees to much nitrogen around the roots of the plants. The myth originates from them who sell the cure all over the world to mistreated farmlands. They do not want us to learn how cheap it is to fix.

Be careful with manure and You will never have trouble with it again.
