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.

Random Bonsai Tip

Use vinegar and water to remove moss but it is not as effective as using Limestone Ammonium Nitrate (LAN) and water. Be very careful not to spill any of the LAN on the roots of the bonsai tree as it may burn them and may in the worst case cause the tree to die. Carefully paint the LAN and water mix on the trunk of the bonsai tree and within days you should see the moss turn brown and die.
