Milk is a sophisticated biological warfare food for opposing fungi, mainly because of its protien content which makes it both a food source for mildew eating pathology but also sticky as protiens inherently can be; as well as film forming, which presents across the surface of the leaf and thus disrupts the natural enzymes said fungi would normally use to penetrate or subsist upon a plant surface. It thinks it missed the parachute drop and landed on a cow so it will die. Well after the tricho and other fungi arrive it's spores may also be eaten as well of course.My Roma tomato plant has that few of these spots. Any advice? I tired 1 part milk 8 parts water saw it on YouTube
I ment asprin lolAdvil is great for headaches but will do nothing about powdery mildew. Hydrogen peroxide works fairly well if mixed @1-2 cup per gallon of water but what works better is potassium bicarbonate. Neem Oil works good in early stages of powdery mildew. Copper based fungicides also work fairly well into the mid to late stages. But when anything is used BOTH sides of the leaf must be covered.
I might spray off any milk or aspirin before using it. I have not tried this but other gardeners I know have and it worked pretty good. Just dump a box of baking soda into a gallon of water and stir it up. What happens is the baking soda is highly alkaline and the mildew cannot live in an alkaline environment. You can use the hydrogen peroxide every day if you prefer. It only lasts 3 or 4 hours before it becomes just plain water.Ok i will try hydrogen peroxide does it matter that ive already user, milk and aprin? i hope i dont kill my plant
