Talkback: Dealing with red spider mite
Dealing with red spider mite
Red spider mite loves warm, dry environments, so is often to be found decimating greenhouse and house plants.

The cucumber plants in my greenhouse were growing well but started to develop "powdery mildew" which I was told was due to the atmosphere being too moist.I tried to increase ventilation and water carefully.I now have mildew and red spider mite which I know like it hot and dry - you see my dilemma, where is the flaw in the argument? Is there a "dry loving" form of mildew ?

I only had one plant in the greenhouse and that was a small peach, unable to put the peach out because in the rain it gets peach leaf curl, anway there it was infested in no time with red spider mite, you can't win can you, it's either one thing or another. Not giving up though
