I love marijuana and I love natural, real, home grown anything. so when i decided to grow my own herb, i wanted to do it organically. but enough of that. here is my problem:
So I picked up two clones from my local dispensary back in December '13. Living in Southern California i thought this was going to be a piece of cake. Brought the babies home, put them in some “organic soil” i bought from the nursery, gave them water, gave them a couple sprays, tried my best keep them in the sunlight as much as i can. everything was going great. in about 3 months they grew about a foot and a half or so. they looked like they were doing great.
One day as i was spraying them with water i noticed one of them was covered with this film like material. i got up close to see what it was and just my luck, it was spider mites. they had only affected one of the plants, i quickly removed the other plant away from the infected one, checked every leaf for the terrorists. i searched the web for natural homemade pesticides that wont hurt me or the plants. i read that Pink Himalayan Salt mixed with warm water is way to get rid of spider mites. By the time i was able to get that salt in my hands, both plants were infected. So i tried the spray, sprayed both plants just once, a couple days go by and the leaves are all shriveled up, drooping down, dried out, the plants looked dead. Not knowing what else to do i chopped them down and now i have two sticks in two pots sticking out of the dirt.
I guess my question is, if there is something i can do to bring these plants back to life, what is its, what can i do? what should i do? What Should i have done before?
