Is it ok to cover the plants at night with cheesecloth / muslin? We are having a terrible infestation of Gypsy moths & white flies. I spent like 2+ hours “grooming” my girls. I can’t keep doing this through harvest.
Hey @Jezebel Welcome! And Happy growing!
You absolutely can cover your plants with cheesecloth. Preferred would be “unbleached”
cheesecloth, but of course, any kind would be fine.
Are they in flower?
Whew! Because I did it, then worried it might weigh them down too much or stick to the trichomes. They are in flower. According to some peeps here, they have about 5-6 more weeks to go. It’s my first grow.
Follow-up question: Do I have to remove the cheesecloth for the plant to absorb sunlight, or can it do that through the cloth?
