You work hard to keep your cannabis crops in top condition, but the threat of infection is always looming. People moving through your grow space, new tools, even the air itself can carry pathogens. One of the biggest threats to your crop is the fungus known as powdery mildew. This threat can arrive in your space at any time, and if your facility isn’t prepared, you may have a hard time killing powdery mildew before it kills your crops. Read on and discover how you can prevent devastation from this fungal infection.
An Airborne Threat
Powdery mildew appears as a grey or white powder, which forms when fungal spores land on your cannabis plants. These spores can be carried into your space by people or animals, or may come in on tools brought into your grow room. However, the most common way for powdery mildew to spread is through the air. If there are powdery mildew spores in the air around your grow space, your entire crop could be in serious danger. Prevention is the name of the game, and luckily it only takes a few simple techniques.
Protect Your Grow Room
The first thing you can do to keep powdery mildew out is to make your grow space a restricted area. No through-traffic, no pets, and as few visitors as possible will help keep spores out. Clean equipment is also a must – if any equipment you’ve used has been near an infected plant, clean it thoroughly. Try not to cross-contaminate, and keep your tools clean and accounted for in your grow room.
Purify the Air
The best way of killing powdery mildew is to eliminate it from the air before it has a chance to infect your crops. Filters only catch some of the spores, and they don’t necessarily destroy them. Airoclean 420 uses technology Developed for NASA to eliminate airborne threats and VOCs, including powdery mildew. It captures and destroys airborne contaminants, leaving your grow room with pure, clean air. When you remove the spores from the air, you neutralize the threat of powdery mildew – protecting your crops and securing your investment.
