    Chop them down,do whats in this video. Disinfect everything in your grow. Don't forget the floors,pots inside and out and anything that was in your last infected grow.Don't forget the lights..Otherwise it will rear its ugly head next grow................

      Don't stress about the king said the mildew is a bigger problem and can potentially ruin the smoke.just slow dry and cure them buds good.i personally never flush.just a nice long cure......and slow dry

      You can't afford to flush with your PM problem. If you have access to a flushing product like Clear X or something, that might give you a quick flush.

    Dehumidifier and more fans is your best bet at this point. I agree with SanBoisLee and Dizzajay, cut her down. I know your looking for smooth smoke but mildew and mold will be worse than a poor flush. Sorry my friend.

    I can see spots of heavy PM. I'm in the cut it down, disinfect, and start over boat. You might want to think about making edibles or another finished product out of this harvest if there is lots of mildew on all the flowers. I wouldn't smoke it if it was mine and I had a good stash to keep me going until I could harvest again in 3-4 months. I don't grow my own to smoke powdery mildew! I would possibly go buy some from a friend that I know grows quality flowers before smoking it if it is really badly covered in PM! The quicker you cut your looses and start over, the quicker you will be running at full strength again! Might want to invest in a dehumidifier soon. If I'm not mistaken you was growing outside wasn't you? I see that it is inside now. I hope you get problem under control very soon! Good luck and happy growing my friend!

    I have already told you what i would have done with this grow, but i give you credit for trying to hang in there. The mildew is nasty and has to be gotten rid of before you can dry cure or smoke this stuff.........if you can even smoke it. I know i would not try smoking any of it, i would get rid of the entire grow and start over. I know it is a difficult thing to do, but sometimes it is best to be safe than sorry. The best of luck to you. Peace

    OTG, remind us please: you are growing outside, right? No way to control humidity will be really frustrating. Is there any way you can move inside and use a dehumidifier in the future? You grow great looking buds but struggling with wpm is probably a losing battle if you can't control RH.
