Anyone know what’s eating my fan leaves? I don’t see any bugs, just the bites. I rubbed neem oil on the leaves to prevent further damage but kept away from the buds. Any suggestions?

Yes these are snails/slugs. Snails loooove Beer. If your plats stand ingarden dig some cups, halfway into the Ground an fill them with beer the snails drown in it. I you are on other ground just put some halfway filled beerbottles near your Plants. They cant resist. Have fun drinking the beebottles halfway empty and happy growing

I agree with the egg shells. We used them this summer on 3 growing beds. No sign of snail/slugs bites whatsoever :facepunch:

Hello @FjordMountain ! It looks like with a snail or slug bite or maybe a bird wanted to try and see how it taste. You can spread egg shells over the soil around the stem like @DudeGrowsWeed said. They don't like the texture of egg shells neither do i :yum:. Other options are diatomaceous earth but it becomes ineffective if it gets wet and the best option of all is to use sand paper. They really hate sand paper . Happy growing ! :facepunch:

Could be slugs/snails. They are nocturnal. You can spread egg shells over the soil, they don’t like the texture of egg shells. If you are growing in pots, I’ve also had success wrapping the outside of pots with a couple layers of copper tape (available from Amazon). Good luck :+1:

hey man you got caterpillars taking bites out of your leaves - just do what you're already doing, hopefully it will help, if not, consider compagnon plants to protect your buds... good luck crossing the finish line !
