Powdery Mildew - Houseplants Disease and Control
Powdery Mildew Disease
Powdery Mildew is a fungal disease characterized by spotting or coating of the leaf surface with a white powdery deposit. This leads to disfigured leaves and it can spread to the stems and flowers of your houseplant. It is prevalent in warm humid conditions. The disease is not as fatal as botrytis.
- Improving the air circulation reduces the occurrence of Powdery Mildew.
