My tent started off just fine minus one plant that I had done in soil instead of hydro I noticed a slivery kind of glaze on my lover leaves… it has started to spread I have noticed tiny bugs on those leaves what are they? How do I get rid of them… I am 4 weeks into flower…
Physically remove infected leaves, soak plant down with 3% peroxide and distilled water mixed 50/50. Wait 24 hours then apply either Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew (spinosad) or Safer Caterpillar Killer (BtK). Wait 5 days then hit with peroxide again followed by either of the two products above. Continue until harvest.
I normally use the liquid from 10-15 cigarette butts soaked over night in a quart of water, strained, then add 2-4 drops of liquid dish detergent. Spray entire plant liberally. Also, for the last 3-4 years, just before hanging plants to dry I immerse them in a solution of water, lemon juice and baking soda. After about 10 minutes or so I final rinse them by immersing them in clean water. Works wonders for cleaning and insects. GLTA
I’m using every available thing to prevent bugs for my first grow and haven’t had too much problems except for nutrient burn and mildew. I try and keep everything natural, so I’m using companion plants (spearmint, peppermint, dill) that keep bugs away, and now i just ordered ladybugs to eat any bugs/eggs.
