Moulds and Mildews. Surely just the murmurings of these words will bring a cold shiver running down the spine of the majority of growers. Other than maybe watching the gay fish Kanye West completely ruin Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody at this year’s Glastonbury festival, there is almost no situation more likely to make a grown man cry than the realisation at a point close to harvest that the majority of your crop is in actual fact a complete write off.
Just imagine it: your pockets are left bare from the high tech wizardry you’ve invested all your pennies in creating the ultimate grow room. You’ve spent more time than ever before monitoring your nutrient solution. Spent hours and hours training your plants and making sure that at every step of the way they have done nothing but be shining examples of everything you have ever wanted them to be. You’re stepping back for a second to admire the unbelievably amazing length, girth and form of your flowers thinking to yourself how you can’t wait to post them on Facebook and Instagram in order to make people super jealous of just how green your green thumb really is.
