I’m growing Pineapple Haze outdoors in pots with potting soil. I’ve used some nutrients through the
Caterpillars definitely cause havoc.
When I first noticed a little leaf damage, it wasn’t until I started digging that I saw the damage to the buds. It was almost like bud rot , brownish. I dug into them and removed all the pests and was forced to harvest early.
Nukem and many other sprays can be really harsh. I found a few things fried my pistils in flower. maybe knock the strength down a bit, try not to soak your buds, make sure you do it at sundown so it’s not exacerbated by sunlight.
spider mites would show more damage in your leaves- not seeing that from these particular photos.
it’s a sativa, it’s probably growing on its own schedule and slower than it’s sisters. to me it just looks like it has a ways to go. when did flower start?
They can destroy an entire plant. Certainly ruin your crop. If you have caterpillars it’s a fair bet you have other pests like mites or aphids.
Plant looks to be only 3 or 4 weeks into flower which means you’ve got a month or more.
If you used something not specifically for cannabis, that could cause small flower production.
Thanks for your help. I sprayed after dark, but since I was trying to protect the buds I probably gave them too much. That could be the bud burn I hear about. I think it’s been flowering for 5-6 weeks, so I will wait on this one. Info says it flowers for 12 weeks. I got a late start, so my plants are not as big as they should be. Trichomes see cloudy to me…
Interesting you say it’s Sativa cuz the other three plants I have look different and I think they’re Indica. Short and squat versus tall and stringier. What I bought was a hybrid. Hybrids must have to grow characteristically like one of the strains of the hybrid.
Thanks for your help. I did use regular potting soil with some other dirt... a custom blend you might say. I'll know better next time. I got a late start so plants are small, plus only a 5 gallon pot. Seemed big at the time. I'll keep picking caterpillars. Today there was a freelance lady bug on one plant. Sweet. I think it's 5 weeks into flower. Supposed to take 12 according to the owner's manual... Trichomes look ready to me. I 'm going to wait a little longer. Another plant has been flowering 3-4 weeks longer... with a big cola.
All of the Haze strains are sativa-dominant. That’s not to say a hybrid won’t express indica traits. That’s just the nature of growing from seed.
After trying some of the newly harvested I see why the caterpillars were moving so slow.
We were comparing what I would call a little bit immature plant and one that I had thought was mature. Started on the immature. Nothing Earth shaking. After cutting some off the mature and trying it. That one made us feel like everything shifted into a higher gear. It felt like turbo kicking in a car.
