I read your article on Gray Mold, but did not understand what to do about it. . . how do you get rid of it?

Gray mold, or botrytis, is a fungal disease. Once this fungal disease starts, it will spread to the rest of the healthy plant. Botrytis thrives in humid, damp conditions with cool nights. Spores are spread by wind and splashing rain or water from one plant to another. You will need to keep some ventilation going and remove all dead and dying parts of the plant to deter the mold from growing. You can spray the plants with an approved fungicide (check the label) to keep the disease from spreading, but it will not stop already infected plants.
