Pest & Disease

The first rule with Pest & Disease is that prevention is always better than a cure, so products which aid in increasing the plant’s immune system is an easy way to reduce the chances of pest & disease infestation.

 

Second is to visually inspect your plants regularly for signs of pest, colour changes in the leaves, fruit and flowers and using yellow sticky traps to highlight a pest before they cause an infestation. Once you know you have a problem, you need to correctly identify the issue may it be Spider MitesWhiteflyThripsAphidsFungus Gnats,Powdery Mildew or Botrytis cinerea (grey mould).

 

Pest and disease require constant monitoring as the problem can quickly become overwhelming and uncontrollable. Which will lead to poor plant health, lower yields and quality and sometimes then the death of your plant.

 

Diseases affects the health and vigour of your plants, when indoor gardening many diseases that can appear in the grow area are difficult to control, so it is important to keep reservoirs, plumbing and piping, walls, utensils and general grow area clean and sterile as possible. You can use a range of sterilising produts such as Hydrogen Peroxide, Citro Fresh, UV and Ozone to help. Silica can also be used as a natural barrier to prevent disease entering the cells and harder for pest to attach the plant.
