    My "Forest in a Bucket" has a spider mite infestation. Nothing close to what was pictured in the link, but still enough to really piss me off. They're getting another soap bath tomorrow. They HATED the last two and recovered slowly so the three strike rule is going to apply. If I can't get rid of them this time, they're going in the green bin.

      HD, that is one gorgeous plant, so rain death and destruction down upon them. I've been fighting gnats on this grow--nowhere near as fierce as the mites...

      alltatup Yeah um....that's actually an optical illusion

      There's 5 indica dom plants in the bottom/front and 7 hemp x's in the back. When they show sex, boys are getting culled and the rest will be clone donors. They look pretty good packed in one bucket, but they're all pretty ordinary.

      I'm using ladybugs (hell of a time finding predator mites locally) and it hasn't completely stopped the problem but seems to be helping.
      ****tent (2x4) and large light (Relassy 300W LED) is in storage for now until I can solve some household electrical issues****

      CoM Stonington Blend soil, distilled water; Liquid Squid amendment if needed, molasses for flowering

      Google TipTopBio for all kinds of beneficial nematodes and predator mites. I’m fighting fungus gnats myself and just bought some nematodes to help with the larvae in the soil and I have sticky traps for the flying adults. Luckily my local nursery carries TIpTopBio. Wanted to add thanks for the post and the web page is TipTopBioControl.com hope it helps someone..

        The Borg won in my last encounter with them on my wife's Elephant Ear plant. I tried everything from neem oil to even straight alcohol. I finally ordered what has worked in the past Mighty Wash https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . A whole gallon cost me forty bucks, and the money was spent to no avail. Finally just tossed the plant into the dumpster.
