Planned downtime on Friday, July 20, 2018

Hello Forum Members,

We love all the awesome pictures that you have been uploading, but we started running out of space to hold them all. In order to increase our storage space, this Friday the growing community will be down all day for planned upgrades and backups. We should be up and running again for the weekend!

Happy growing,

    Hard to see, but looks like mites, do you see any spider web looking stuff on that plant?? You gotta look under the leaves too.If it is spider mites you better get rid of them fast. Nebula has lots of information bout bugs on GWE, an how to get rid of them.

      I will get more pics as soon as i am back from work. The pic is the under side of the leaf. For now i have gone round the plants and took any whit specs of and squashed them.
      As of yet i cant see any webs on any o the plants.
      This problem is only one plant and on 2 leafs only as i can see so far.
      I will get more pics. Thankyou for helping

    Can you take more pics please? Based on the size I guess that they are mites. Keep watching them; if they elongate they are thrips. A solution would be to buy neem oil or spray it with miticide or a pesticide. To prevent this in the future think about how did can get there in the first place. Inspect clones, and don't contaminate your plants with infected clothing.

      Part of me thorght it was clothing that got them there. Or a fly that i seen in there and killed it as soon as i seen it

      Morning Colin87, there's lots of stuff to use on those mites, but it's not easy to get rid of them, so you better take care of them quickly. Read Nebulas advice on how to treat them properly, quickly.
      Good Luck Colin.

      If you haven't seen any webs yet, they might be aphids. Either way, like DAAS69 suggested, treat them ASAP.
