    White powdery fungus taking over my sarrs

    Ok guys, what the heck is this At first I flipped out that it was mealies, so I douced everything with Bayer spray. Nothing. Few days later, I soaked everything with Sulfur spray.. and that seemed to help for a while.. Then it just comes right back maybe a week later on the same plants.. I have some that are literally completely covered and the plants are not happy.. And you'd think this sunny, hot, dry 95 degree weather would make fungus not happy, but it sure doesnt seem to care!

    I would get some liquid fungicide containing Bacillus subtillus. Serenade is the one I use on my plants (not cp's). Most garden centers carry that one, OMRI cert. I would try it on one plant first before applying to the whole lot.
    "Eagle" is another fungicide that works better than serenade if you can find it. If you have a freind growing Cannabis, they would more than likely have what you need.
    Do not dally, this stuff can spread like wildfire in a day.
    A current survey on my home site shows this years Powdery Mildew has started earlier, and more widespread than in years past.

    It looks more like spider mites to me. Look closely with a magnifying glass. For spider mites all you need to do is spray them off with water.

    (I take this back and now agree on whiteflies.)

    ^ what mickey said. I get it on my pumpkin plants a lot. A 50/50 spray of water and alcohol should kill the fungi while leaving the sarrs burn-free.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    BE get the macro lens out and get me a closer picture. seems to be up and down the pitcher. could even be waxy residue left behind by mealybugs. just your pitchers are not deformed enough....... but other homopterans scales, mealybugs, whiteflies can leave a white waxy residue...... Maybe a few pics near the base would help me also...

    I was also thinking whiteflies. I just washed a bunch off my irises.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
