    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    Ah! I have been using this Green Cleaner for the past couple weeks. It has been working. But this last time I used it- it totally burnt all the leaves. They are all yellowed and dried up. I used the same concentration and lights off etc. So frustrating, it’s never ending with this round. The buds don’t seem too effected. They got slightly yellowed as well, but under the loupe the trichs still look good. It there anything I can do to help these sickly plants recover (only a couple look ravaged)?? They only have a few more weeks to go, but I’m not sure how well they will survive with basically no leaves. Thanks guys!

    Monster cropped clones - transition, nutes

    This may be a bit off topic, but now that I think about it, who better to ask than you seasoned locals... I’ll be in the market for clones again soon. I have met a couple great people and received fantastic clones in the past through Bud Trader, despite reading to avoid this site like the plague. It’s pretty obvious who to avoid on there, but not always. I have looked into strain bank, but I’ve heard the same sort of scamming propaganda about them. And they say to avoid BT, etc, etc. I have dealt with Further Genetics and been very disappointed and they seemed more legitimate. Clearly you have to be careful who you deal with. Where do you guys recommend getting clones from in this great state of MI? I’m in the southwest area, but I’m not opposed to traveling within a couple hours. I have heard about the following places, but have no personal experience with them: Strain Bank (already mentioned) MaryJanetics A1michiganmeds mittenweed a2m3 Thanks guys!!

    Monster cropped clones - transition, nutes

    Groovy. Nutes added. Thanks guys! I’m gonna let them hang out a bit longer in this cloner before I disturb them for transplant. A couple of them are laddering down nicely.
  4. Some of my monster cropped clones have rooted. It took about 10 days. Using clone king with only pure water so far. They are under 4 2ft T5s. I feel like I should be giving them some sort of nutrients now. The flowering plants they were cut from were getting half strength GH trio. How much should I give these rooted clones? What else should I give them (mold, pest, etc prevention)? How long should I let these roots progress before I try and transfer them to a DWC? Thanks guys!!

    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    This Green Cleaner I am using is basically soybean oil and soap. Obviously, I’m sure it’s a bit more involved than that, but it’s working and I can spray it until harvest without any detrimental effects. We shall see...

    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    Azamax is the first thing I looked up after seeing these mites. But being halfway thru flower, I wanted to use something as gentle and inert as possible cuz there is no way I can keep whatever I spray off the buds themselves. This Green Cleaner seems to be working, but it’s clearly gonna take multiple applications. Such a pain in the donkey to soak the undersides of everything. Takes forever and makes a friggin mess. I HATE these bugs.

    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    After reading up about Monterey, it’s seems it is not really made to treat and kill mites. It may still work, I won’t deny that, but there is too much debate about the effectiveness of spinosad on mites. After the initial drenching of Green Cleaner, things definitely look better. The PM especially- the spots that have been repeatedly popping up after being treated with H2o2 do not seem to be returning after Green cleaner drench. The mites look better also, but they are far from totally eradicated. I still found some living upon close inspection. I will trim again and give them another soaking tonight. I realize that it takes several vigilante applications over a week or two to truly be effective. In reading about spider mites, many people were talking about physically squishing them and watching them abandon the plant as it’s treated - I dunno wtf these people are talking about, cuz I can just barely see these things using my 10x loupe. They create a sort of thin cobweb, under and around the leaves. I don’t care what kind of mites they are - it seems they are all treated the same way. I just found those comments confusing. Thanks for everyone’s ongoing help in dealing all this. You guys rock!

    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    Well, apparently I have a small spider mite infestation also. This grow has been a frickin nightmare. I will NEVER use a minimalist approach again. I guess I just got lucky in the past. I will be treating them with as many things as possible from the start. Picked up something called Green Cleaner from the hydro store today. It cost just as much as Regalia or Procidic2, but it treats PM and mites and I can get it a few ounces at a time so I don’t have to blow $100 to see if it works. Just soaked them up and down with it at 2oz/gallon. It did seem to literally wash the PM right off the leaves. Although, I’m much more concerned about these stupid mites, which seemed to appear out of nowhere overnight. Gonna reapply at 1oz/gallon in a couple days. I pray this works. And there is no frickin way I’m trashing everything and starting over.

    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    Neem oil, potassium bicarbonate, h2o2, milk, among a few other things, all seem to be decent treatments for dealing with PM. Frankly, I like the idea of just spraying them once in infancy and being done with it. I have monster cropped some clones and it’s possible they may have inherited some PM. I just want it nipped in the bud now. I do NOT want to battle it throughout growth and maturity.

    Regalia, Procidic2 and powdery mildew

    I have heard about Eagle 20, but I was concerned about it’s toxicity. Is it safe? I have read some horror stories about it, but those may very well be unsubstantiated propaganda.
  11. Does anyone have experience with either of these products, especially with respect to treating/curing powdery mildew? They are pricy and I don’t want fools gold. Thanks!!

    Nutrient burn and recovery

    I had a couple plants get what I believe is nutrient burn. I was gone for 3 days and they drank more out of their dwc buckets than anticipated. There was most likely nutrient buildup at the bottom and only an inch or two of water remained once I returned. I had switched them to 12/12 a week earlier. They had been vegging for 7 weeks so they are quite large to say the least with a root system that takes up about half the bucket. Strain is Waikiki Queen. I already swapped out the water on them, let them chill for a day or so in plain (ph 5.5-6) water and then gave them the half strength GH nutrients they have been getting. They seem to be doing ok, not drooping or anything. Only the upper fan leaves got burned, most of the ones nearest to the flowers of course. I realize the burned leaves won’t recover, but I’m unsure on what to do next. Should I cut them all off? I don’t wanna stress it out. I’m assuming eventually all the affected leaves will just die fully and fall off. How will this effect the flowers that are just starting to develop? Will these leaves grow back despite being in the flowering stage? Do they need to grow back? I guess I’m not sure what to expect so I’m not sure how to prepare for it. I took some pics. Here’s a link to them: https://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/833740 Please help! Thanks!

    Rough browning leaves- diagnosis please?

    Ok that doesn’t sound like the issue then. I’ve previously looked at it closely with my 10x loupe and seen nothing. It’s progressing nicely, it just looks a little unhealthy in spots. I will be vigilant with water cleanliness going forward.

    Rough browning leaves- diagnosis please?

    Done and done. My biggest fear is some sort of microscopic mite infestation (broad/russet mites, etc) although none of the other plants are doing this.
  15. One of my plants has had rather rough looking leaves since it was a small clone. The leaves were all green, they just didn’t have the normal smooth appearance. It has progressed as normal as is the same size as all the identical clones beside it. The roots look gorgeous. Some of the leaves have become browned and dried up. I am hoping it is over fertilization (I just changed the water today). Please help! Thanks! Pics here: https://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/833531
