I have been thinking about the watering and woke up in the middle of the night with a thought. Kind soil does not want you to water with runoff. I have the plants in 2 different rooms. 1 set of plants is a week behind the other. In the tent I have never had runoff.
In the grow room I dusted the plants with food grade DE. thinking I may have had mites again. In the grow room I let the plants dry out a bit longer as I saw something running in the soil so I figured the DE would get it. When I watered I gave an extra day before watering and when watered I gave extra water and actually had a tiny amount of runoff. On the 8 plants I maybe had a cup+ of runoff total.
The leaves on plants in the grow room seem to have stopped turning and look a lot better than the ones in the tent. I was thinking then that maybe it was mites and the DE was working. I looked with the microsope and 60x loupe and still saw not a sign of a mite. I really cleaned with alcohol and hung pest strips and had no plants for 2-3 weeks in the rooms so I figured I got the mites out.
So now I think it was the watering. I may not be giving enough to the tent room plants and that is why they still show the leaf symptoms. It is water day so I am about to water and will water till I see just the start off runoff and see if they improve. I know I watered more on the last 2 kind soil grows and they were flawless.
I am on vacation for a week now so I am going to take the grow room plants and move to the new garage 4x8 tent and water the house 4x8 tent a bit more and move the male DD 6MILS to the grow room and clone them all so I can find the best male and clone the DJ’s BB females in so I can cross them with the DD 6MIL
