When I topped the plant I decided to try my hand at cloning in soil. Made a dome. Put a Temp-barometer inside with. It seems ok so far.
Day 9 for clone- has new growth even though leaves that were cut on edges (as I read I should do) look VERY unhappy. droopy. Soil isn't drying out much- shows signs of too much water in soil I think.
New growth so maybe is rooting. We'll see.
Call this one Clone#2
Can you believe we found a ladybug hang'in round and put her on the plant. Hug there a few days eating left over mites. After two rounds or so of my home-made mite treatment. Mites were gone. The first batch was photosensitive. So, worked like a CHARM but must be applied at night cycle and followed up by water spray. So effective though! Recipe below.
Love helpful bugs vs pesticides. #organiccannabis
I'm a Newb. Don't know about hardening off a plant before exposing to different climate. Should know better. My other plant was out on patio and put this one with her. was too hot! Heat stress! So sad. I watched it happen and finally caught on in 30min that she needed to be rescued.
When I brought her in from severe heat and humidity I knew she would need much recovery and ran out to grab alfalfa and kelp meal after some study.
ouch. added alfalfa meal to the top of the soil (1/2 tbsp) for recovery and a little water to carry it in.

Learned about "heat stress" and companion critters. Keep the EDU coming.
Homemade SPIDER MITE Spray (recipe from an orchid grower)
1 Liter / 1quart spray bottle
1-2 tbsp peppermint Castille soap (plain worked well for one batch too)
1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
PH H20 (mine was 6.3PH)
If you use Lemon Essential oil remember it is Photosensitive!
Lemon EO 90drops
The citric acid helps kill creatures of this type. However, with any essential oils, it is good not to expose sensitive plant cells (or human skin cells for that mater) directly to sunlight/ grow light right after.

If you are going to need the plant to be in light leave out the Lemon Essential Oil. I always purchase "bergaptene free" EO from Mountain Rose Herbs , However, I noticed this was still photosensitive for the plant.

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..
