Q.What is the white fuzz on cucumber plants?
My cucumber plants have a white fuzzy film on the top of the leaves. After a little while the leaves dry up and also the little tiny cukes. What can I do to stop this problem?
It sounds like a form of what is called Powdery Mildew. It can be a real problem on rosebushes, cucumbers and pumpkins, just to mention a few plants. I use a product called Green Cure to get rid of it. I have have bumper crops of pumpkins and cucumbers, not to mention healthier roses, since using this fine product. It comes as a powder and you mix two of the large end of the scoop in the container with the powder per gallon of water in a pump up sprayer. I recommend adding the proper amount of Green Cure to a quart jar of water and shaking it up well to get it mixed up good, then dump it into the sprayer with the rest of the water needed for the capacity of the sprayer. It is good stuff that has worked very well for me for several years now. Here is a link to the product: http://www.greencure.net/
