The Ride Home. 10-12" tall. Gnagly Clone.
Her spot in the window for now. Grow tent under construction in the basement. Slow going. 2-3 oz H2o given. (PH=6.2) soil was bone dry.
Day7 at my home Signs of Dreaded Spider Mites. (note: egg on leaf)
Super Cannabis Mites. Red Spider Mites are super resilient to treatments. (my research shows) SMITE= failed.
Mites discovered when repotting into her final pot. 10gal. Bloom Soil on bottom- Veg on top. She's sleeping. Smite treatment 2x before giving a homemade remedy that killed em.
Hoping for least stress possible with only one transplant.
Topped her as she was pretty lanky. Hoping not too much stress with, new pot
Sunning in the front window. Adjusting to life in the "big pot".
Still look'in a bit sad from Mites but she will heal.

Plenty of challenges out of the gate. Mites were from the breeder. Had a lot of research to do consider it is my first grow. My intention was the come home with auto seeds and this person convinced me to "take a clone home". So I came home with this one. Also, gifted me a sick auto that had spider mites. Little did I know how easily they could spread to this clone. Have learned a lot about types of mites. "Super cannabis mites"- which is what these are and different types of organic and natural Mitacides to use in the future and IPM which I will work on getting ahold of. All shops are sold out of all the organic treatments here. Annoying. Dr. Zymes will be one I am looking for. Anyone have opinions on this one or sources for where I can buy that are more affordable let me know. I am "back-filling this log btw". in hopes that I will join this community and give and have support for #organiccannabisgrowing in the future. As someone who is disabled and suffering from the progression of serious illness at this time, it is quite a challenge growing a very temperamental plant as well as trying to get my grow room ready (the plan was to have it ready BEFORE starting to grow anything. Sometimes people push their ideas on ya though and I am totally responsible for giving in to that. Haha. It will work out however it needs to.

Grow Questions
Aromagurl week 9 started grow question 6 months ago
Help. Heat stress? Russet mites for sure. Can she recover? Please look at grow diary 9weeks. I am so new at this and had such trouble with CBDream. Such a touchy medicine plant. Was a weak clone to begin with (now i know) but I could really use advice about recovery.

My bad with the lights on the soil. I read bout living soil and roots. I cooked the roots. :( so sad. I was wrong about too much water. Thought nute-lock but no.(that's why i was trying to dry soil) It was actually the mite treatments I think that were the cue de gras. It recovers in a day or so. back to having a healthy smell again and leaves start to look better. sensitive stomata? LIGHTS: turning light intensity up & adding lights for heat on fabric pot was BAD. So, looked at Spyder farm recommends 60-90%. Went one cycle with 80%. last PM. Will check today. can go back up to 85%. Seams to do well there. (before Russet invasion) I have heard of stretching due to light being too weak or far away. When I looked up forums -THANK YOU- (growweedeasy) & articles I learned that long lanky growth can be heat stress too. Too many similar visible symptoms can mean same things. FYI: Removed fan on soil. Hope the one oscillating isn't too much (windburn).

Thank you so much! I thought Nitrogen tox too but this is living organic soil(water only). I did give a kelp foliar spray 7 days ago and noticed nit-tox I thought? Residual signs I think now? with living soil not supposed to ever have run off or flush. The organisms in the soil will die. The soil has dried out to "moist" which is "healthy" for microbes. I agree that I DX wrong with most of this. I think multi-things R wrong. I am just so new and no experience. I noticed when spraying "Plant Therapy" for russet Mites the plant reacted right away by curling more yesterday. Sat and observed for 10min. It was immediate. Had that clawing right after Azamax too. (most of you are right I think--too many things going wrong at once) If I make too many changes I won't know what helped the plant'. I know too much heat on roots for certain now after reading up on living soil, root issues and watering practices or living microbes.

This doesn't have the outward leaf curl that is common with heat stress.. This can be heat stress.. But it's not the high or the low we worry about so much as the fluctuations.. If your Cannabis is somewhere in the ballpark of 20-30 degrees it can most likely Acclimatize to it's growing space..... I was pleasantly surprised on my last grow with the ability of 4 plants to handle heat stress well in excess of 30 degrees with minor amounts of supplement Co2. A tall and lanky plant is in my opinion and sign of not enough light... If you have high heat and low light then it would do the exact same thing.. If you had high light and high heat.. Your rates of transportation(water intake) would increase. Cannabis can handle exceptional amounts of light.. Your misunderstanding what you are observing..
