  1. Today
  2. I made the mistake of spraying my buds with neemoil in early flower, moerse mistake. The pistils were all dried out by next morning. I did move 2 WWidows outside due to infestation few weeks back, but the back to vegging now, which ina way is a good thing cause they were on the edge of death basically. Lost almost all their leaves, but happy that they nice and green again. However that being said, its not an option with the newly infected ones. They infestation isnt too hectic yet. Just noticed a few of the buds were covered with webs. I may go the “cutting my losses” route and just remove the infected branches.
  3. You're late in flower now so any spray isn't a good idea at all. If only 1 branch is affected I suggest cutting your losses and cutting that branch. If more than 1 branch is affected you basically have 2 options: You manually attempt to remove as many mites as possible with your hands. I suggest wiping all the affected leaves with a small piece of cloth dipped in h202 solution (30ml of h202 per 1 litre (3% H202) but you'll need to keep doing this every few days now as the chances of getting rid of all of them is pretty low when removing by hand. Get your plant into a small sealed container and fill the container with CO2. Not really possible for most people to do but it is an option...

    Lady bugs?

    Looked into this a while back.... Ladybugs and their larvae are voracious eaters. Youd need a massive supply of aphids, spidermites etc to keep a high individual cycle going. So you would in fact have to adopt a number of breeding programs to make it sustainable. Then, they dont do well in indoor environments overall, and they will more likely be focused on escape than de-pesting. My solution is to provide an outdoor area, my veggie garden, where they breed and flourish in summer. That way I can catch a few and take them indoors. The larvae are a better choice to take indoors.
  5. @Oolong83 I just saw this, I've also suddenly gotten spiter mites. I guess they must be traveling around our area at the moment 😞
  6. Hi all, I've not been active here lately, also it seems I've not been paying enough attention to my plants. I'm in late flower with a four plants and I think I have about 2 - 4 weeks before harvest, I have amber pistils but not too many amber trichomes yet. Yesterday I noticed that one of the flowers was covered in web, so spider mites are having a ball 😞. What are my options in late flower? Pyrol? I think thats a bad idea in late flower right? H2O2? What percentage to how much water if so? Anything else? For now I've increased the airflow and sprayed the undersides of as many leaves as a can. I'll get a bigger spray bottle today and keep doing that. Thanks for any help
  7. Yesterday
  8. Agree on the quality of canna. Lots of good reviews from reliable sources. The prices gonna be stiff.

    Lady bugs?

    @Bakstein420 i think its worth looking into.

    Lady bugs?

    @420SA they just started flowering. Sprayed some neem again yesterday and could see the pistils all dried out this morning.
  11. Brought in some legit fast seeds, I'm running a special on them atm - R35 a seed 👊 They are bulk seeds so we have to re-brand them though from proper breeders, same stuff cape ape is selling. Will be growing them out over the next few months to get some pics. Gorilla Glue #4 x GSC Fast Feminised Seeds Grandaddy Purple Fast Feminised Seeds Girl Scout Cookies Fast Feminised Seeds
  12. How difficult would it be to breed lady bugs? Would there possibly be a big enough market for them?

    Lady bugs?

    What stage of growth are you in? Neem oil is a preventative and wont treat infestations. Pyrol will do that. The Margaret Roberts or Ludwigs spray will also do the trick but it stinks, rather spend a bit more on Pyrol. I used to stay in Table View and the builders warehouse there used to stock it. Not sure if it still does, nevertheless you wont struggle finding it in the cape
  14. You cannot purchase lady bugs in this country, I've been looking for many years. Just buy some spidex from koppert (https://www.koppert.com/spidex/), they're based in JHB but I'm sure you can find a retailer down there if you phone them up and ask.
  15. So unfortunately things have still been abit rough concerning available time but seems to be calming down the past couple days and hopefully things carry on that way 4 of the 6 have decided to be boys including the siamese twin , am thinking of harvesting some pollen from them for some future breeding , as all the plants have favorable characteristics This means I will run with #6 as my lady for the rest of this grow log , I was hoping to have her in her new home a while ago already and she should have been in these pics taken yesterday. I will chop and drop the covers in the container as soon as i can so she has some time in there before she jumps fully into flower 17/01/2020 Day 82 - #5 ; Day 83 - #1,2,3,6 ; Day 86 - #4 #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
  16. Thanks for the advice will look into getting a ph pen asap. I think I'm going to go with soil-less. Going to look into Freedom Farms soil-less mixture and also the GHE FloraCoco range. Thanks for all the help mate. Here is an update on the tomatoes.

    Lady bugs?

    Hey guys This is rather urgent, my grow area has become infested with spider mites. Ive gone the neemoil route, but they are persistent little fuckers. My next route is to get lady bugs, however i have no idea where to get them. Does anyone know where i can purchase ladybugs in the Blouberg area?
  18. Eishhh.... outdoors we are all subject to mother nature and her moods. Good mending job there. Just prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Some stakes and a roll of electrical tape does come in handy though....hahaha.[emoji3] Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  19. As far as I recall when I asked the agent last year he had no intention of bringing it in. However the Canna range is in the process or near registration completion those are pretty great nutrients from what I’ve seen.

    seeds

    @sohailafzal so your best bang for buck from us would be a 40:1 Compolti x Lemon Kush pheno. We would have to bring in bulk (Unbranded) and would work out to be around R50.00 - R60.00 a seed. Can supply the lab report as well. "This is a big, CBD-rich plant for outdoor cultivation. CBD content is approximately 12 - 14%, depending on local conditions, while THC is below 0.3%. This latter figure means that it is perfectly legal to grow in both Italy and Switzerland." GENETICS Compolti x Lemon Kush FLOWERING TYPE Photoperiod SEX Feminised THC CONTENT <0.3% CBD CONTENT 14 - 16% YIELD Up to 3000 gr/plant PLANT HEIGHT 300 - 400 cm GROWS Grows outdoors TASTE / FLAVOUR Citrus, Lavender, Musky, Spicy / Herbal EFFECT Balanced, Calming
  21. Nice one dude. You ladies is loving the attention your giving them. Always fun to see what your doing next. Im a fan of tea's but haven't been using them to much this season. Next season I'll be more into homemade stuff than store bought stuff for veg and flower.
  22. Hopefully??? Believe in yourself dude. It WILL give you good bud...
  23. Oh yeah they are definitely looking better. Glad to see you got the hold of that issue. Nothing sucks more than deficiencies. Vegging is always a breeze but flowering kinda brings out the issues.... Woman, pffft.... LoL
  24. I'm sitting with a pipe and a cup of coffee watching this wind just fucking rip through everything. Luckily my plants is braced but seeing them getting klapped like that gives a bad feeling in my stomach. Sorry about that break dude but I see you recovered nicely and looks neat. I already cleaned my lady from the bottom because of the wind. It helps quite a bit.
  25. Sorry I wasn't specific, I was actually referring to their nutrient range
  26. Not at all concerned about drowning my roots, the opposite infact. I want to automate my feeding while maintaining the same amount of level change in my reservoir like when feeding with a wand so that everything gets fed once in a 24hrs cycle before reservoir is empty.
  27. Last week
  28. Maybe it does do something, I think 90-95% of how to get the best budz can be read up and then the trail and error to get the experience... But it's that lady 5-10% that we are looking for that interest us [emoji16] Sent from my F5321 using Tapatalk
