    Is it botrytis? Maybe ventilate more. Take off all affected foliage and remove from greenhouse. Try not to overcrowd. It's not uncommon in conditions like these. It's a toss up between doors to auto and blight or doors to manual and botrytis.

    I've said this to you before, bradlo, and I'll say it again - Gerrem orf!
    I'd say too humid and not enough ventilation

    So just keep removing affected leaves as soon as I see any sign of mould?

    Yup- and increase ventilation- otherwise you are going to lose them!

    I agree - you're not alone Bradio. Keeping blight out by keeping doors shut increases the risk of moulds like this. It's difficult to know what to do at the moment. You have my sympathy.
