    Okay this my first grow so I'm going to try to keep everything detailed so you guys can see the solution or WHAT the problem is...

    I have 6 Plants all together 2SFV + 4 TAHOE OG
    My plants came into a mildew problems before fixed it with greencure and get a dehumidifier
    now my plants start getting like something similar to mildew on the plants so first thing i do is start chopping off leaves because i cant use greencure where about 8-9 days to harvest and i also sprayed my plants with baking soda what im trying to ask is are plants safe from using the baking soda and in these pictures does it look like mildew (THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO HELP ME)

  3. Mildew is a bitch and usually the final last thing that can destroy your whole crop right before harvest. I lost a lot last year outdoor on the coast. So now I only get locally grown strains resistant against mold and mildew. Some cool strains though like these I am growing this year.

  4. You can wash your buds after harvest. I got this recipe from Jorge Cervantes. Mix one cup of hydrogen peroxide (3% solution you get from the drug store) with 5 gallons of water. Soak your freshly harvested buds in this solution for 3-5 minutes while gently agitating them. Then rinse them with plain water, give them a gentle shake and then just hang to dry as you normally would. I do this with all my buds even if I don't have a mildew problem. Gets rid of any dirt or dust that might have gotten on them during your grow and makes them taste and smell amazing! Super clean! Good luck.

  5. That sounds terrifying atticspace. Can you show some pics or go more into details so if I try that it's fool proof.

  6. Ive done the jorge Cervantes hydrogen peroxide wash before also. It wasnt for powdery mildew, but I had to wash my buds after a bunch of dirt blew onto them. It works well. Like everything, its on Youtube just watch the vid
     
  7. I read that a diluted milk and water solution can fix it but idk. Ill give it a try
     
  8. Yeah. Just check out the YouTube video. It scared me at first too. But if you're gentle with them and have a good drying space with good ventilation they'll dry just like normal. Definitely makes for some clean tasty smoke.

  10. You'll enjoy your herb so much more when it's clean. I really can't explain how much better and cleaner the smells and tastes are.

  13. You give it a gentle shake to get rid of most of the water. Then hang it and it'll dry just like normal. Just keep the space well ventilated. The excess water evaporates pretty quickly.

  14. Does it take anything away from bud? Or have any problems arrived from this method? I read about it a few years ago but seemed too out of my comfort zone.
     
  15. The only thing taken away is dust, hair, dirt and any mildew. I wash all my bud now even though I don't have mildew issues. It makes it taste super clean and brings out all the flavors.
