How to Get Rid of Mildew on Plants


Not even plants are safe from the threat of mildew, a spore-like fungus that thrives where darkness and moisture prevail. Plants that have plenty of water and shade are at risk for developing mold. Not all types of mold are harmful, but it still creates an eyesore that can give plants an unpleasant appearance and foul odor. Eliminating mold from plants is a simple task that reaps great benefits by restoring order to your garden.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking soda
  • Dish soap
  • Spray bottle or garden sprayer
  • Add 1 tbsp. baking soda into a gallon of lukewarm water.

  • Add 2 tbsp. of liquid dish soap.

  • Pour the mixture into a spray bottle or sprayer.

  • Spray the plants thoroughly, being sure to coat the mildew covered areas well.

  • Repeat as needed on a weekly basis.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use dish soap that doesn't contain lotions as they are not as effective.
  • Do not apply the mixture in direct sunlight as this may harm the plants. Do not save any leftover mixture as it will not be as effective next time.
