Maybe try the BIG6 micronutrient pack from BuildASoil which is high in manganese with no iron added, although it's hard to say if Fe:Mn ratio is the problem without a soil test.
Edit: Forgot to say that should be plenty of perlite as long as the dust has been removed.
Sounds interesting for sure, Im open to learning more about this approach, so you are saying you are 100% confident that you currently have stock that is infected, but is not creating spores in flowering at all? And if so, how were you able to figure out that it was this fertilizer regiment that was responsible for the change as opposed to one of many variables or factors?
I guess thats what Im looking for in this post, which was to hear from people that are able to keep it from creating spores, without any weekly spraying, or that cured it 100% and are following an ipm since and have been outbreak free.
Thanks guys, good responses in the first day. This is all Ive done today, is make this post and read up.
