Any ideas what this is on my corn salad. It is a white film or thick dusting. It is only on my Corn Salad (Lambs Lettuce) both in the conservatory and the house (windowsill) plants. No other plants are effected. Thank you JB
I've never grown corn salad, but that looks very much like powdery mildew, which I have had on cucumbers and courgettes. Joy Larkcom (in her book Grow your own Vegetables) recommends improving ventilation, if the crop is grown indoors. I have used a bicarb. of soda spray, but this only really stops the condition from getting worse, it's not really a cure - sorry!
I think it maybe Powdery Mildew; if so these links may help.

I agree looks like powdery mildew, I usually get it on my peas in dry conditions. Didn't get that this year but got pea maggots instead
