Just when you think you have it under control you go out of town for a few days and come back to thriving thrip infest! I have been able to keep the gnats and thrips under control for the most part but this week they did some damage. LESSON LEARNED: DO NOT BE CHEAP ON YOUR SOIL!!! As you can see I have sticky pads on both sides of my tent and I sprayed neem oil last night. I also put down some food grade diatomaceous earth. Hopefully I can get rid of these pests before they start flowering! If not I will have to get some lady bugs and amblyseius cucumeris to finish the job. Anybody have any experience with amblyseius cucumeris before?

@Cannabisqueen, THANKS!! :) it has been a little struggle. I used some cheaper soil this go round and have been battling gnats and thrips. Some strains have been resilient while others have struggled, but it's a good learning experience!

What lights are you using I'm at the same stage with my pineapple express but much shorter even with the light moved to top of tent in the hope she would stretch alittle more

@AllOrganicCartel, I have a 8 bulb 2ft T5 light with 6500k HO bulbs. Nothing too special.

Looking like you are off to a mighty fine grow. Sorry to hear about the gnats. I too am growing some Pineapple Express from FastBuds, along with several other strains. Best wishes on the rest of the grow. - Zannabis7
