Discovered my first pest.
Pin head small. Brown rice shaped bug sits on the leaf and can see them moving. Only found 3 or 4 so far and no leaf damage so not sure what they are.
First time with a pest in 3 years.
Do you have a picture by chance? I’m pretty confident I can identify it if it’s a good picture
No i pulled the 5 off i saw. Nothing matches pests on growweedeasy.com so might just have been transferred
If i see any tonight ill take a photo
Nevermind lady bugs out of stock because of forest fires .
Figure its thrips? Diatomaceous earth is 56 bucks and only kills whats in the dirt.
Yes that is thrips
Can you get Californicus in your area? They will take them out.
If you need a lead to get them let me know
Thanks for confirming it was Thrips. That’s what I was thinking, they are hard to get rid of pests for sure. Called where I grab my stuff and they have predatory mites to eat them at $3 a pack, a pack is good for 1 plant for 5 weeks.
Then I will try 50/50 Isopropyl Alcohol / water spray on the leaves.
Let ya know how it goes!
Sounds like your on the right track
californicus is a type predatory mite also
I think the mites will do the trick without spraying.
Let me know how it goes👍
So prior to flower they were watered every 2 days due to pot size.
That lasted 3 waterings into flower and realized that was too much. Went to every 3 days until thrips.
Since then only every 4 days.
Doing a pre bought tea mix with carbs every 8 days with water every 8 days alternating 4 days apart.
Still seeing a few thrips every night with the darker skin but thats it…
Nothing alive in dirt from what i can tell.
3 weeks and 3 days in flower
That’s gonna stack up beautifully
@STANK here the gang is kicking along
That’s the plan just need to keep these pests at bay
Real nice. Gonna be tastey.
What are using to keep them under control
Here are some closeups
Yeah i totally see the difference. Very nice clumping going on. And denser I would imagine. I love dense buds. They seem to hold the essence of the bud longer IMO. Your plants look amazingly healthy. I think this “squish” as you call it might work for me for yield and the grobo because of the space. I think it’s genius IMO. Thank you for sharing your results. I feel more confident about my first grow and already looking forward to the second. This is solid information.
