Powdery Mildew on my Fabric pots and Coco?

Hey DGC,

Thank you in advance for your help! I have been noticing white stuff on the outsides of my fabric pots. Im growing in Mother Earth coco perlite using suite leaf nutrients. Today is the beginning of week 10 from sprout. All are different Autoflowering strains. I previously got help from you guys with my plants all suffering ph issues. That seems to have been fixed mostly. Although I am having Fox tailing. Anyways I have been noticing white stuff on the surface of coco and outside of fabric pots. At first I thought it was salt residue or maybe some sort of beneficial bacteria because roots pop out of pots too. Now wondering if it is actually pm?

    It’s just salt build up and not PM. You can wash it right off.

    Yup definately salt build up happens often with fabric pots. Make sure your watering slow and evenly so you run off through the bottom of the pot and not through the sides which can commonly occur with fabric pots. Nothing to worry about my friend ladies look great good job

    You really need to get your drain bucket outside of the tent. Because you are causing the moisture to be released back in the tent. Costing you money.

      Ugh, I can’t figure out to get it work being outside the tent.

        Try raising the dehumidifier unit up milk carte worked for me.. Out a lower access hole for the drain tube.
