Killing Powdery Mildew Without Funguside

The indoor grow environment can be difficult to control exactly and often becomes an ideal environment for crop destroying fungus or mold called Powdery Mildew or PM. Powdery Mildew and other fungus issues are difficult to control and can overcome even clean well-maintained grow rooms, destroying entire crop cycles. To make matters worse Sates are beginning to restrict the fungicides available to growers, leaving them at risk. Layered prevention is the best way to prevent a PM disaster. It is said that smoking Powdery Mildew can be hazardous to your lungs, so if found it must be corrected before flowering. Best practice prevention includes; moderate air flow, humidity below 70%, plenty of lumens, clean grow grooms, quarantine rooms, PH near 5.5 veg and 6.5 flower and appropriate nutrients. I believe appropriate natural best practice solutions layered with electronic preventative measures are best. Today Rocky Mountain Efficiency offers two surprising electronic means to prevent and destroy PM. The first is UV LED Pathogen wand. It can be suspended within the canopy to treat where fungus starts. This UV light is so far to the edge of the spectrum it is invisible. This spectrum of light is terminal for PM spores and can stop an infestation in its tracks. Another technology that we offer will eradicate pathogens like PM, Grey mold/Botrytis, Downey mildew and blight. It was developed by NASA to eradicate mold naturally using PCO technologies. This system is energy efficient, chemical free and can be used in all phases of plant growth. If you do spot PM problems early you can remove infected leaves, and try to spray your crop with 9.5 ph water found in whole foods. Otherwise refer to your regions policy, chemical restrictions and recommended allowable solutions.
