I had problems with mildew outdoors last year, the potassium bicarbonate didn't do much. It slowed it down a bit but didn't stop it from taking hold and spreading. The weather played a much bigger factor. When it was sunny and warm the mildew melted back, when it was cool and foggy the mildew spread like wildfire. The strange part was that it attacked my most mold-resistant plant, a Mextiza. The plant tended to shade itself, lots of fluffy shaded lower limbs.

Once the mildew gets 'down in the sap' of the plant I'm thinking not much can stop it. Sulfur got rid of it indoors, that'd be my go to solution. Potassium carbonate for the very earliest stages as a preventative.

@mountainkine, you go ahead calling other infantile and spraying shit on your plants, while I will harvest my clean safe weed . It is typical of assholes to revert to such tactics when people don't agree with them.

PAA is not allowed in the EU for food applications and for good reason! Even though its residu is non toxic it still leaves a residu. So yeah as far as fungicides are concerned, they are the safest. But I prefer my cannabis without any residus on them, even if they are safe.....
How often do use it over your plants and do you use it flower too. Also what precautionary steps do you take while using the light?

For preventative measure once every 2 or 3 days. Many times I don't do preventative, I wait for the first symptoms and then I do it every day, once the PM dissapears I do it once every 2 days.

I shine the light at about 10-20 cm from the plant 3-5 seconds per spot.

I wear special gloves and glasses and long sleeves.

To avoid powdery mildew or grey mold during flowering time, its better to choose varieties which are resistant against it and there are varieties which have pretty good resistance against those fungi pests.

Like what is said on the site of cdpr that none of resources what is recommended is federally registered for Cannabis and sure the federal government is still far behind the legalisation issue.Cannabis is still schedule 1, but it means also what is recommended to use has the lack of safety literature at what dose and till when is it allowed to spray.Spraying chelated metals is imo out of the question during flowering time.The only material i would spray but very little is Sea-Crop, but only during the beginning of flowering.
You seem confused because if you’ll spray sea crop then there’s no difference in spraying say calcium chloride on the plants.

There’s no grey area at all in what’s legal to use on a California licensed farm.

Maybe you should look up what FIFRA25b exemption is before you say it’s a grey area that can be used to slip in banned substances

What’s the “good reason” it isn’t allowed? I feel like if you knew you’d cite it specifically but instead you just want to bolster your position by using rhetoric like “it’s banned for good reason”

Do you realize that PAA disassociates in to water and co2 ?

I recommend that you read the text of this link

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-cont...LEX:32016R0672

Incase you don’t I’ll include the points that are important.

2)
Peracetic acid has been evaluated in accordance with Article 16(2) of Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) for use in product-type 1, human hygiene biocidal products, product-type 2, private area and public health area disinfectants and other biocidal products, product-type 3, veterinary hygiene biocidal products, product-type 4, food and feed area disinfectants, product-type 5, drinking water disinfectants, and product-type 6, in-can preservatives, as defined in Annex V to that Directive, which correspond respectively to product-types 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 as defined in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

Seems like it is approved in EU for all types of uses - like even disinfecting drinking water - for a good reason - this stuff works and is the safest biocides compound one can employ - I’ve been holding this in my back pocket because I’ve been waiting for you to cite something that says it’s banned for use in EU but you just keep on with nothing to back up your claim so today I decided to just pull the law out for you to read.

This is why I use the word infantile in reference to some thread participants - You've got guys running around defending their position based off of emotion and not fact or experience. That is infantile behavior. I don't care if one doesn't agree with me or even if they do. What I do care about is factual information, of which there is VERY little in this thread.

Thanks for the tips thc. I'd like to get the one where it's just the light and the fan or get one installed in my a/c blower. Have you had experience with the stationary ones or just the one you wave over the plants?

This is the one that I was looking at. I really just need one to add to my arsenal in my ipm.

It cannot be used as a fungicide for food crops..... it is used as a disinfectant...
