trichcycler Posted November 7, 2013 Report Share Posted November 7, 2013 I started with stranger clones I picked up from a market. I transported them in a sealed plastic bag. When I returned I rinsed off all of their substrate, and their leaves/ stems. I know cold water kills mites. I put the bag into the refrigerator overnight, because they cannot live in 34 degree temperature very long. I immediately changed my clothes and laundered the dirty ones. Next day after a good inspection turning up no results, I transplanted them into my veg room, last year. Still no mites, hmmmm? My little jack russel just loves fresh trim and she follows me around the farm all day, waiting for a task she is more than happy to perform. she waits outside of the building door when I'm tending garden, like a guard dog, and will alert me to any kind of visitor in the yard. She'll stay their for hours until I come out. I can tell she really wants in though, instead of waiting for harvest rim. I decided to start letting her into the grow room and she loves me even more for it !. she know the entire routine, and often guides me to the next steps. She sniffs, looks for intruders, eats fresh fallen little trim. she prefers the fat calyx over a leaf, go figure. I let her roam my garden with me always now, and the past years have been a delight doing it.My plant trays are up three feet off the ground, but that doesn't stop here form sniffing the air beneath everyone of them. I heard lots speak of letting their dog into the garden and blaming them for their mites. Still no mites....hmmmm? Like many growers I'm a grow sto ho, or at least I was for a couple years. I noticed that each time I visited that the most popular area was the poison shelf, which the store could hardly keep stocked. Nobody cared about the meds they were providing, or the safety of the sprays sold there. I mostly listened when I was there, while picking up my yearly promix bale, and couple bags of happy frog, maybe another pack of grow bags, a fitting or two, and some cool conversation with the employees. they tell me that the rack with poisons on it makes more money than the sales of plant food, ballasts, dirt, trays, or fittings combined. I cant tell if I should laugh or cry at that, but move on. So, where did your mites come from ? I'm trying hard here, and no luck. tehe saiweeleajede 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
