is a fairly common disease which affects a wide variety of plant species including
indoor and outdoor plants. Powdery mildew is one of the oldest known plant diseases on record.
Though infecting many different species of plants, all powdery mildew cases are characterized by the
notorious white to grayish fungal growth on leaves, stems, and heads.
Powdery mildew typically shows up first on leaves and stems of infected plants. Quite often in
house plants this infection is mistaken for dust. Powdery mildew is more apt to show up later in the
growing season simply because it favors the higher humidity levels of late summer. The same holds true for indoor plants affected by powdery mildew. Though it can occur at any time of the year, it is more likely to show up when temperatures and humidity levels inside are higher.
Powdery mildew is not only unsightly, but it can cause serious damage to certain plant species. One of the common plants that powdery mildew is notorious for infecting is the beautiful begonia. This plant may be seriously injured or even killed by just a mild powdery mildew infection. Protect all your plants from powdery mildew with our Emerald Mist
