Canadian Xpress Powdery Mildew Treatment 100ml Bottle
PMT is a non toxic treatment for Powdery Mildew. It is part of Canadian Xpress’ Induced Resistance strategy and stimulates the plant to ramp up its own defences against the disease. Powdery Mildew is a fungal leaf disease which is common in commercial greenhouses and is becoming more common in indoor gardening all around the world. Left untreated. this disease will kill every leaf on a plant and destroy your crop.
It is first seen as white powdery looking spots on leaves. These spots grow and join together and soon the whole leaf becomes white. If you shake the leaf. you will see a white dust or powder flying around. This powder is the fungus’ spores by which it spreads. The parts of the leaf that are white are the main body of the fungal infection. The fungus grows on the leaf and sends root-like appendages into the leaf cells and suck out the cell contents. This kills the cell. As this process occurs. the fungus spreads. killing more and more leaf area until. eventually. nothing is left.
