Mildew

Mildew is a fungus diseas which thrives in hot, humid conditions. Once established it is difficult to control. Prevention is better than cure, so spray trees prone to mildew (oaks, Pride of India) early in the season and repeat throughout the summer.

The systemic fungicide, 'Funginex' can be used.

Remember that it is usually advisable to use garden sprays at a weaker strength for our bonsai, than recommended for normal garden purposes.
