Noooooo!!! I’ve been babying my girls and made it to week 9 of flower w no major pest problems… a few days ago I noticed a few leaves appeared to have a few white spots… but I didn’t see any mites. I just saw a few mites underneath a leaf! Then I moved onto another plant and searched the whole thing and didn’t see anything… but then another plant has a few! I’ve been planning on taking these plants another week or so… but should I just chop now? I’d prefer to wait if I can… I would love to just spray them with something but am afraid I will ruin taste… although the plants in this tent are mostly for extract… do you think it’s ok to spray w alcohol and water mixture? Or H202 and water mixture? Or even use a light neem oil mixture? I used some during veg but never during flower… I also have some “garden safe fungicide 3” which says it kills spider mites… that would impact taste but if I’m using this tent for mostly RSO oil will it matter? I’ve never had spider mites… I think a few may have jumped off my dog when he stuck his head in the tent… only thing I can think of… but I’m less concerned about where it came from and more about what to do next… so, I have 3 questions:
1.) should I chop early?
2.) if I do chop, will any mites hang around or so they leave chopped plants? Do I rinse the buds to get any off (as of right now I don’t see any on buds and I don’t see any webs.)
3.) could I take a plant in the shower and run water on it? There don’t appear to be too many right now but I’ve heard horror stories…
any advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
