Hey guys I have a zkittlez, green crack and 2 gdp autos in a 4x4x8 tent with good air flow and I’m having trouble figuring out what these spots are, they are only on the Zkittlez and Green crack, the gdp are fine. Anyone with any thoughts on this? Really early WPM?
I would need a closer picture, but early wpm does start out as a spot, but is usually fuzzy and it wipes away.
If it is WPM, upon closer inspection, Sierra naturals, and baking soda worked for me.
To me, it could be some dust that collected on the leaves. A lot of air movement in tents, and things can be picked up and distributed in the tent very easily.
Are you using a ultrasonic humidifier? It aerosolizes minerals in tap water and can create that type of problem.
I use a dilute spray of hydrogen peroxide to treat WPM.
Thanks for the response man, first time grower and get nervous about everything and also think worst case first haha, but now that you’ve said that it could be from the fans picking up dust in the tent makes more sense to me because I’m rocking a 600watt air cooled MH/HPS so my humidity is always a battle but I never let it get above 60% and the humidifier isn’t in the tent. And from what I understand about WPM is the humidity needs be above 60 and having poor air flow correct?
Hey man thanks for the reply, I use a Vicks cool mist humidifier right now if that helps I’m not sure if it’s a ultrasonic humidifier.
Ck your operating manual for your humidifier. I’ll bet they require distilled water and you used tap.
Honestly the humidifier has been on my upgrade list for awhile, it’s a cheap Vicks cool mist one I’ve had for years lol I don’t have the manual for it anymore but I’ll take your word for it, would you have any good humidifier ideas around $80-$100 in price?
Have you seen it under a microscope or do u have a microscope if so can u take pics with the microscope
I’ve run my humidity down to 40% it’ll still be a problem for wpm. (I have it)
60% is a good number for early flowering, but I would decrease the humidity as you get into late flowering, you want anything under 50%.
Try running ro water or distilled in that humidifier. Does that spot just blow off with breath like dust or is it stuck like a bug egg plastered to the leaf just seems to possibly be a dust particles but could be wrong and might be something to worry about but looks like nothing to worry about as of yet. @Covertgrower I know it was expensive but u need to see about the blue magic stuff as I’ve only made one application and don’t see any signs of it any longer on any plant at all. I’m kinda loving it lol. Was like an every 3rd day deal to spray and I haven’t had to spray since I did the treatment with that. If u are anywhere close by me not now tho as we r on quarantine cuz my daughter but I’ll give u a few oz of it to try out. It’s great so far. Don’t have a bad smell either
What’s this blue stuff you speak of? And I’m
in New York and I will try running the distilled or RO water, I’ve been looking into getting an RO buddy anyways because my tap water is hard
I keep mine right around 45% that’s honestly the highest I can get it without throwing the temp out of whack
It is called blue magic works great so far against wpm and gnats super pricey tho but so far I think it’s totally worth it as I had wpm bad and it wiped it away 1 spray although I sprayed the crap out of the plants but it took every bit of it away and haven’t seen it since the few gnats I seen are no longer anymore either
Thanks man I’ll look into it, never can have to many tools to use in the garden haha,
Here, these are about the best I can get, I have a hand held jewelry loop 40x/60x but really wanna get a microscope for the phone.
It just appears to be dust. Try and dust. It off with a feather or kids paintbrush also clean out the humidifier and try using distilled water in it from the store a gallon should last a bit and be fairly cheap. Good luck
Here are some shots from this morning of the 4x4 I have a 2x4 tent all ready to go just literally waiting on rope hangers lol, but I was just thinking of waiting out until the gdp is done, I’m guessing it’s gonna be 2 weeks, but like I’ve said this is my first time growing anything so if you guys have any insight or tips then I am more then willing to take them
Thanks mark definitely will give all of those a try.
Im not sure about this one see one of the problems is i havent had any mold problems at all with any of my grows so i really cant suggest anything maybe one of the other growers may have a idea
