Mould? Organic cure please.
Posted 18 January 2020 - 11:33 AM
The reason is I bought a bag of compost and it had white mould in it. I was told all was okay and just to mix it back in as that is normal for some compost to get a form of mould but it is good fungi.
Two days after transplanting I noticed a white spot on one leaf, I gently cut it off and threw it away, the next morning, more, and now even more. It's obviously spreading. This is in my veg tent and I have my flowering tent next to it.
Can I get confirmation that this is mould, how to treat it organically, and could the soil is really been the cause of this? We have had a lot of humidity and I've been struggling to keep it down in the tent. PS. I dusted with cinnamon last night.
PS. I have had a a fungal gnat issue. I'm using fly paper and catch and average of 10-15 every few days.

You blokes/ladies must smoke some chemicals
spray some milk on it, its saved a few plants here, rip of any infected bits, it will help it from spreading,
on warm humid nights PM goes beserk, same as long cold wet weeks
I've heard that works. Do you have to mix it with water, or just spray it directly onto leaves?
I have also found a spray of baking soda, dish liquid, and Was thinking that may help but if milk is a tried n true method I will go that road.
I found the green thumbs a tad out of my financial reach at the moment but I do appreciate your advice
