Remove Powdery Garden Mildew With The Help Of This Pantry Ingredient
Powdery mildew is a fungal disease that appears as a white or grayish powdery coating on the leaves and stems of plants, leading to stunted growth, poor health, and reduced yield.
A simple yet effective treatment for this problem is to use vinegar. To achieve the best results, mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of regular apple cider vinegar with a gallon of water.
Use a spray bottle to apply the solution, thoroughly coating the affected leaves and stems. However, avoid oversaturating the plant or directly spraying the soil.
Apply the treatment during the cooler parts of the day, like early morning or late evening, to prevent the sun from intensifying the vinegar’s acidity and harming the plant.
Since vinegar provides a more immediate response rather than a long-lasting solution, regular reapplication may be necessary, particularly if signs of
mildew reappear.
