Question: How do I help stop my plants from getting moldy in my indoor garden and/or greenhouse?
Answer: Most important in mold and mildew prevention is to make sure you have proper air exchange and air circulation. Go big on your exhaust fans and filters and fill your wall space with oscillating fans. Get those plants dancing by blowing fresh air through them. You can further aid in airflow by not overcrowding your plants and by pruning your plants. If you still notice a humidity level that is higher than acceptable, try adding a dehumidifier to your garden. We have also found that biweekly applications of Einstein Oil and Coco Wet throughout early stages of growth help prevent mold and mildew in later stages of growth.
