Does anybody foiler spray everyday?

Hey y’all…so I’m using ionic minerals and the product suggest you can spray everyday up until about the last week or so when you flush. This is the product

Eco Organics My Weed Minerals Ionic Trace Micro Nutrients for Growing Marijuana. ½ Gallon (64oz) Concentrate Nutrients for Growing Cannabis Plants. (1)

I take the plants out of the tent when lights go off and spray them well, they seem to soak it right up and I wiggle each one and shake off any extra before they go back in. My question is, am I taking chances with mildew and mold because I’m growing indoors? This is my first grow , and I feel like this spray has been awesome in veg stage and helped me produce so many more branches and bud sites. Also it supposed to make the crystal maximum potential! What are your thoughts? Anybody else out there spray there autoflowers everyday?

Very few foliage feed ever at all. I know virtually no one who sprays their plants after flowering starts. It risks mold developing.

I have a question guys. Can an autoflower be cloned?

So because the product says it’s designed to be sprayed on buds and helps there development… My theory is that maybe it’s better used outside?

Seems like deceptive marketing. Cannabis can get everything it needs via the roots.

Anyone else any experience with everyday mineral spray indoors?

I occasionally will spray with Raw yucca. Mostly during early veg. That is when I think of it. I have had a couple run ins with bud rot / mold. I would not intentionally add moisture to the bud no matter what the supposed benefits might be.
This is the top of one bud lost

I had to remove all of the bud to about where my thumb is.
This one was obvious. Others I did see until I pried open the bud to remove leaf stems. On day 54 of 12/12 is when I saw the first sign. I cut out several buds then and sprayed them down well with a diluted peroxide spray. Must not have caught it all.

You have some beautiful plants @Kozmoz , Keep that air flow circulating and good air exchange will be plants best friend against mold or mildew. I have no experience with foiler spray. good luck my friend. :v::handshake:

I’m rocking a dehumidier , 6 inch mars hydro and 2 small fans… So I think the flow is good, stays hot cause the 650 Mars hydro. I’m like 85 day and 70 lights off

As of right now, I’m going to stop the foiler spray and just use it on veg stages. These girls are staring to plump up, and don’t want to take a chance

I do foliar feeds and sprays. I don’t like saying so on this forum because people tend to attack others who do. All it takes is to post a pic of a plant with moisture on the leaves and someone will start their nonsense about burning leaves. The mold/mildew is new, but with proper air flow it isn’t a problem (at least for me).

I think misting my plants is beneficial to them. Foliar feeds can immediately address nutrient deficiencies. I mist my plants twice a day. No burning leaves and no mold/mildew. I foliar feed my plants with a dilution of fish emulsion or tea.

There isn’t enough time for a clone to get rooted and grow in veg. Might work, but it will be an extremely small plant.

85゚ not bad , In the future You might consider running your lights at night and off in the day hours will change your temperatures a bit If needed.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for your post! My feeling is that is ok for me because I’m rocking a dehumidifier, 6 inch mars fan and two smaller fans for circulation… But it’s my first grow and as you can see people have extreme prejudice again spraying,by no means am I judging them, everybody can do there thing! But its making me a little nervouse because I’m only 3 weeks in and I got some big fatties in there !

I have a box fan in the top of my flowering tent (above the light). I have several circulating fans below the canopy. Good airflow and negative pressure in the tent are essential.

What do you mean by pressure? Like stagnant air?

Yeah. Your exhaust fan should be set so that your tent sides are pulled in.

What foliar feeds do you use?

You don’t get water/light burn?

The link is in my first message. I think my weed minerals is next level , I used it during lights and no burn… But I switched to when lights turn off I spray , just to play it safe and they absorb more when lights off and the pH must be 5.8 slightly acidic
