Sage Plant Mildew Update

Jan 8, 2021 | Gardening

After discovering my main sage plant had a suspected mildew issue I did some preventative maintenance. I reduced the watering, added airflow, and thinned out the plant by taking cuttings.

I still think it was being over watered but it has not fully recovered yet. This is odd since I thought the three actions I took would help it.

My plan is to re-pot the plant in fresh soil and a new planter. This current SIP is not ideal as my bottom watering system isn’t aligned correctly with the watering hole. I will also thin the plant again and harvest any leaves with leftover mildew spots.

I will keep checking in with updates. Leave a comment below if you have any suggestions!
