White powder/spores on plants

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by kokopelli, Jan 18, 2010.

  1. Some of my plants look like they have mold spores or something growing on the leaves. It lookes like a white dust or powder. Does anyone know of a certain spray I should hit them with or just wipe it off with a towell?

  2. hey, i have the same problem, most of my leaves from half way up to the bottom of the plant have this, let me know if anyone comes back to you with an answer, i am going to post a thread with some pics of mine, let me know if urs is the same, thanks
  3. Picture with post like this is very important. Unless you really want wrong advise.

    Search for powdery Mildew if thats what you got. You can wipe them down with a damp sponge or get a can of compressed air & see if it will blow away.

    Without a pic most people wont even bother posting a reply
    Good luck
  4. i have been told to spray the leaves with diluted milk, take 1 part milk 10 parts of water, just done mine tonight so will see how it goes:rolleyes:
  5. Increase ventilation and lower humidity also.
  6. Neem oil kills powdery mildew if indeed thats what it is.
