mites!!! :C
    #726917 - 04/20/14 02:29 PM (2 years, 7 months ago)

i found mites on some clones i got. i saw them 2 days after i got the clones. can mites develope in two days? or did i get infested starts?
to explain the severity of mites i saw; two days after i got the plants there were 10 mites on every leaf and lots of webbing.

I just want a second opinion, anything helps :smile:

They probably came with the cuts.  Buy yourself some avid.  It's expensive, but it will actually take care of them compared to the neem bullshit.

Avid definitely works. I've used it in the past. You can find it online through amazon in smaller containers to cut down on the cost. Just make sure you spray them over with it a few times over the course of a week so that you kill off the mites as they are hatching from the soil.

I'd also pick up 2 other preventive pesticides to use after you're done with avid (if you choose to use it)

AzaMax is a great product that can be used systemically or as a foliar spray. Ultimate Wash works great and is rtu right outta the bottle as a foliar only though. SnS 209 is also a good systemic preventative to use.

If you only have the clones and no other plants I'd mix up a solution with one of the foliar pesticides and dunk the lil fuckers in the solution. It'd be easier than spraying them down. And you could be sure that every possible area on the plant has been hit other than the soil.

There is no need to reapply avid.  It absorbs translaminar, and stays in the plant for 45 days, or something like that.

Also, mites lay eggs on the leaves themselves, and do not emerge from soil.

If you already have webbing forming, you are going to have a hard time keeping them under wraps.

Exactly.

Just for those that don't know a translaminar is a spray that absorbs into the plant but doesn't move around like a systemic so only certain parts of the plant can be sprayed if you didn't want to treat the whole plant. (why anybody would want to do that I don't know but it can be done) With Avid you can spray the top of the leaves and the bottom will be treated also no need to spray both sides.

and it's damn strong shit a 8 oz bottle will last the rest of your life.

The not so surprise ending of this post is that mites killed the plant. Im thoroughly cleaning my room and then restarting from some F1 seeds i obtained. soap water sucks against aphids, Neem oil kills anything less than 5 nodes, and avid is my next big investment. thanks for all the advice :smile:
