Looks like Downy Mildew. Do you water from the top?

Same thing happened to mine. I didn't find anything about downy mildew when I was researching, but it looks like that is what I had. I thought it was magnesium deficency. We have had all of this rain, and being down south it's so humid too. I tried Epsom Salt, which helped a little but by then it was too late it was so rapid forming. I only got two Dragon's Egg cucumbers there were others forming but they dried up.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
