Consequently, what is the white stuff on my cucumber leaves?

Beside above, how can you tell the difference between zucchini and cucumber seedlings?

The first two leaves of zucchini and cucumber seedlings are oval and virtually indistinguishable. Likewise, the second and subsequent sets of leaves are both heart-shaped with wavy edges.

People also ask, are cucumber leaves toxic?

Will powdery mildew go away?
