    HELP! Unkown creatures

    I started noticing that my plants stopped growing and everytime I water them these white lice like bugs emerge from the ground. I tried finding out whether there is something I can get about them you can only find head lice and I know they are lice because they jump everywhere. Must I just replant them or is there a way of getting rid of them?? Need advice please!

      IF it was me- I would be starting over with something other than just soil. I say this because it looks like you are just using dirt - as other plant stems are showing in your photo. IF you are using just regular soil you have likely had the problem since the beginning and it just recently reached a point that the infestation shows in your plants. I would definitely avoid ‘back yard’ soil unless it has been sterilized first.

      AFTER you get a handle on your pest infestation, it would be a good idea to hook up with @Campesino for great info on growing soil-less. I hope you find an answer that works for you soon. You’ve got a great bunch of growers that really want to help and that adds up to a massive amount of first hand knowledge.

        Root aphids! If you are not too far along throw out the soil and start over. Seal the soil in something and take it away.

        If you're not willing to start over with a better soil mix, then get some Neem Oil and mix it with your feeding water.

        The plant will absorb the Neem Oil through its roots, so the next time those bastards try to chew on them they'll get a mouthful of the enzyme contained in Neem Oil which will make them unable to eat ever again, and then they'll starve to death. Every single one of them! Neem Oil also kills eggs.

        Neem Oil is 100% organic and won't hurt your plant or you. Just to prove it; you can use Neem Oil on your head if you have lice, which also will kill them.

        Had the same type of bugs and they were all gone after 4 feedings (where 2 contained Neem Oil).

        I would also advice you to let her dry up really good between feedings. I learned it the hard way, so now I'm letting mine dry for 7-9 days between feedings, and I'm using a 200W bulb and a 4 gallon pot (just for comparison).

        Hope this helps. Bugs are a pain in the ass for sure.

        Good luck!
