As you may know I have been dealing with some weird symptoms on my gg4 for some time now.
Brown/Dark patches, edges and tips are burnt, mosaic pattern, dark leaves, twisted leaves, purple/red stems, yellow spotting and yellowing between the veins, lower older and smaller leaves fall off easily with a touch…
We thought it was nute burn or phosphorus deficiency or maybe a bit of magnesium deficiency but couldn’t tell for sure.
Well I still don’t know but I see these little flies flying around now and after digging around the soil I see the little larvae. It’s a crap load of fungus gnats. I took out as many of them as I could out of the soil but no use.
I know where they came from, I used some top dressing I was keeping outside and it had been raining for a few days so the soil was moist. I used that soil to top and then watered. Now the plant is welting/drooping like no tomorrow, today it’s getting worse for sure, damping off and not drinking up the water.
I watered 4-5 days ago and usually the top inch dries up within 2-3 days. Now it’s moist as if I just watered. The leaves look weak, falling/wilting.
I f$$$ up so baaad. I don’t know if it will live. It’s 6 weeks into flower now, just a few more had left… I was so close.
I see the fungus gnats flying around for sure but I don’t know what else I might have brought in. It’s definitely damping off.
I ordered some DE and the yellow sticky cards already, coming tomorrow. I don’t want to use neem oil or hydrogen peroxide cause I’m doing an organic grow I don’t want to kill all the good stuff.
I also turned on my second LED light now figured It will increase the temperatures a bit to 83-84 maybe it will slow them down and dry the soil faster. I have a fan blowing on top of the soil to prevent more egging.
If you ever experienced this or have any advice for me let me know, this is my one and only plant and if she dies all my work/money has been for nothing for the past 5 month… I had nightmares about it
