CAUSES

Powdery mildew develops in the presence of particular weather conditions, such as a high level of humidity. The ideal environment for a fungus, in fact, is a wet place. You do not see the effects until the fungus starts feeding itself with the elements of the plant, during the winter season. Take in consideration that this disease will most likely attack outside plants more than indoor ones because fungal spores propagate with the wind. Just be aware and check your plants often to see if the fungal spores are already spreading in the environment.
