420pete started grow question 3 years ago
Something or maybe a couple of things seem to be attacking my plants because they have some weird little spots and some parts of leaves missing. Any ideas? Is this also why they are growing so slowly?
Week 4
Leaves. Too few

@420pete so how did you go with the bug problem? I hope you sorted it out?
It's a good idea to always keep a range of pesticides such as Diatomaceous Earth & Neem oil handy during a grow
as you never know when trouble will strike.
Being proactive is always better than waiting for things to happen as i found out the hard way myself
Best of Luck mate

For me it seems you have a lot of thrips on your plant, i would start to use neem oil as a spray solution on the leaves and as additive for your water. Neem disturbs the development of the chitin exoskeleton of most bugs, so they die when they should change their skin. Use it every 3 days on your leaves for about 2 weeka and three times in water, then you should havve killed most of them.

Yoo dude !! builbing a living soil is the most difficult thing to do !! but it s also the best in my opinion. :+1:

as you don't give any informations on your soil recipe it s impossible to correctly diagnosis ur grow…. but as already said if you import troubles/pest with a bad straw for example...or other thing it is normal to meet problems….

this type of soil must be correctly and completly activted to be effective from the start...and for your mulch part i see... it is not the case to my point of view….!!

i am gonna talk in the last chapter part of my diary about this subject.

feel free to check buddy...and feel free to contact me if you want a good instant solution for pest….i will give it when i will finish this chapter part :facepunch:

namasté :pray:

Brother you have a classic case of thrips. May be other pests also. They are sucking on your new growth which is causing it to twist and deform when the leaves grow out. You can spray them at lights out with some insecticidal soap be sure to get every where even under the leaves. You can rinse them off with clean water after 24 hours. You may want to do some house keeping because they will just come back if you leave the rest of the debris in your pot. Also she may be growing slow because of the low temperatures. Good luck

Hey there! It could be the pests causing the slow growth if they are getting at the roots... Otherwise it could be due to your slightly colder temperatures. You're on the edge of it being just a bit cold from what I can see. Try to get the pests under control in order to eliminate it as a factor. Some use Ladybugs to attack the bad pests. Let us know what you do!

yes it is ! good catch ! double check under the leaves with a microscope : your looking for tiny bugs. i'm guessing you've got something like spidermites, thrips, or white flies. What i've done against these is to use beneficial bacteria - they dont get rid of the bugs but they do do a fair bit of prevention. So combine these with something like sticky yellow tape. So you're looking for B.S. , B.T., maybe so others. just message me when you find out which pest it is I can tell you which of these beneficials you need :rocket:

hey Pete can you let me know what you put in your soil mix? Also compost tea does not need to be applied frequently, its more of a microbial inoculation. using a molasses spray after words provides a little extra food for the microbes that you have growing in your soil and on your plant. Id like to help you but need a bit more information on what your doing
