Hey, everybody! Hope you all had a great day today. Or if not, that tomorrow you have a great day.
Now that you've had a little "white light" thrown your way, maybe you can help me with a problem...
I found some powdery mildew on streps someone sent me, and on an AV in another part of the house (yes, I am isolating the streps). Sadly, isolation doesn't work if you already have the problem you are isolating against... Anyhoozle, what can I do?
I was chatting with a web-buddy of mine and she happened to mention that she got some plants from "the source" (which will remain nameless) and they all had powdery mildew, which showed up on a slide under magnification, but not on the plants (at least in her house -the ones in the greenhouse DID exhibit the mildew). OK - she's a scientist! So I was keeping an eye on my plants from "the source" and today, I saw it!
I was disgusted, of course. Then I went to a friend's house, who had given me some AV leaves to put down, and whoa! all her AVs had it too. And she was like, oh, that wasn't there this morning... Uh-huh. But, bottom-lining it, what is the best way to deal with this?
Jon, Larry, et al, I know you are out there and can help me! And I'm very appreciative. And on pins and needles and mildew.
