My girls are droopy!

Mites! I found what I was told were mites on my autos, they had eaten into just a few leaves. I was given the advice to use Sevin dust…I did. My beautiful, perky leaves are all droopy now! Have I done something horrible to my plants, or should they perk back up? I’m about ready to go wash it all off…but the mites…

Any words of wisdom on this subject?

I would get the seven dust rinsed off. Let me tag a couple of bug people… @kaptain3d @Agrestic

Can you get a pic of the bugs?

Seen 7dust used a bunch in vegetable gardens growing up, never seen it harm plants. But it is something I wouldn’t use on my girls. Look into food grade d earth and stickie traps a lot of people use them here. Hope that helps.

If you can clarify of what’s going on and some pictures

If used indoors, Sevin Dust powder could be accidentally inhaled by people or pets. Exposure to carbaryl could cause dizziness, weakness, slurred speech, nausea and vomiting. Poisoning from this pesticide may cause seizures, fluid in the lungs or reduced heart and lung function.
Sevin is something you don’t want to use on cannabis or anything edible

No, only in week 4.

It’s used on vegetables. I was told it was okay to use for this. I’m so new to this.:woman_shrugging:t2:

If they were in flower it could have been a problem sevin dust on buds would be bad to say the least

One picture is how my girls looked this morning, two show the holes starting in the leaves, and one shows how droopy they are this evening after using the Sevin dust on them. I didn’t get a picture of the little black mites before I dusted. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow afternoon, I wonder if I should just let the rain wash it away or if I need to do something now.

It been around forever used on all kinds of plant but I guess cannabis is not one it likes I would rinse it off hopefully someone will chime in that has experience with sevin

I was too worried, I went out and rinsed that off. I’m going to look for the food grade d earth that was mentioned above. I’m praying my girls are happy again in the morning. Thanks for all of the helpful advice.

No help on the mites, but mosquito bits work excellent for fungus gnats. Good luck with that and I use seven dust just on my yard plants.



Well, my girls look much better today, but I still found a few little bugs, barely any but I’m still getting something organic to remedy the problem. I circled two of the bugs in one picture, but sadly, the picture clarity sucks. Yesterday there were many, many of those little buggers on my plants. The lesson I learned; don’t use Sevin dust on you pot plants.
