    Milk and molasses sounds promising. Never tried that mix before but a little bit cautious. Is it really worth it?

    haven't noticed any new mold, i had to pick some of the lower leaves that were moldy, but they were touching the dirt, so i don't think it was the milk mixture.

    Cool. No sign of mould from the milk spray though? Like Saturnalia I think that's my chief concern here.

    nope, the bugs disappeared for a few days but came back, so i got some neems an started useing that, think must have been a lot of eggs in the soil mix. hopefully got it under control for now.

    looking forward to it alexi, a couple of my seedlings had tiny white bugs flying around them and in the soil, so i mixed up a 20% solution of milk and water and sprayed them real good this morning, this afternoon no bugs anywhere. good tip there schmokin!

    I've thought about milk before but just assumed it would encourage mould. Am very surprised to hear it is fungicidal. Keen to give this method a go.
