Q.white powder on plant leaves

ppat324 added on August 12, 2011 | Answered

I am noticing a white powder (not mold or mildew) on my plant leaves. It has spread to other plant leaves. What is it, how do I get rid of it, and can I still eat the vegetables?

Sounds like powdery mildew. The vegetables are fine to eat with thorough washing. The following article should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/powdery-mildew-homemade-and-organic-remedies.htm
